Australian Poetry Slam SA Heat 3


The search is on to find Australia’s best spoken word poet!

Speak, sing, howl, whisper or sing your original poem at the South Australian heats of the Australian Poetry Slam, an electric live event where the audience is the judge.

Slam contestants sign up at 6.30 for 7.00 start. 20 maximum.

Our guest performer for the evening is poet Chris Jaksa.

There is wheelchair access to the venue upon request but the bathroom facilities are not accessible.

Contestants are given two minutes to perform their original poem on stage at one of five heats scheduled to take place at different locations around metropolitan Adelaide during the August – September period.

First and second place in each heat compete again at the SA Final, to be held this year at the Goodwood Institute.

The SA Final winner and runner up progress to slug it out for over $10 000 in prizes and the coveted title of Australian Slam Poet 2022 at the Australian Poetry Slam National Showcase and Final.

The rules are simple. There are no props, no costumes, and no music allowed; just the poet and their words. Judges are selected at random from the audience. Check out the rules here: https://spokenwordsa.com.au/poetry-slams/
