Australian Poetry Slam SA Heat 3

30 Aug 2019
6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Price from $6.00


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 singer-songwriter Eugene Phoa - see more below.

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. However, that being said, there are a number of rule changes this year so if you plan to compete have a good read here: There are links to the rules and to FAQs.

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 are then flown to Sydney to slug it out for over $10 000 in prizes and the coveted title of Australian Slam Poet 2019 at the Australian Poetry Slam National Showcase and Final hosted at the Sydney Opera House.
