The Australian Poetry Slam is not a poetry reading. It’s more like a howling literary campfire with verbal voodoo, breathless rhythms and sweat breaking nerves.
Heats and State Finals are now on for 2012! Two finalists from each state and territory will meet in Sydney to battle with their words at the 2012 APS National Final on December 1st on the main stage of Sydney Theatre.
One will be crowned 2012 Australian Poetry Slam Champion!
The Australia’s Slam Champion gets to tour China as part of the Bookworm International Literary Festival and also gets a guest spot at the Ubud International Writers and Readers Festival in Bali. That is around $11k worth of flights, accommodation, expenses and performer’s fees.
