Australian Poetry Slam SA State Final
The search is on to find Australia’s best spoken word poet!
After five heats and a ton of poets we'll be left with ten state finalists ready to battle it out for the top spots and cash prizes. First and second place will then be 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 Final at the Sydney Opera House.
Doors open 7.30pm for 8pm start
Speak, sing, howl, whisper or sing their original poems. Two minutes, no props, no costumes, and no music allowed. Judges are selected at random from the audience.
Our guest performer for the evening is the incredibly talented MANAL YOUNUS: a freelance storyteller. The young writer and spoken word artist uses her poetry to both discover and strengthen her identity as well as to spark thought and discussions amongst those around her. Since making the Australian Poetry Slam National Finals in 2013, Manal no longer competes in slams but has gone on to perform around the country including at The Sydney Opera House. In 2015, Manal released her first book of poetry called ‘Reap’.
