Jennifer Eadie: Adelaide City Library Poet-in-Residence Project, January/February 2018

Workshop and Group Exhibition / I do not have a home 

Adelaide City Library Poet in Residence, Jennifer Eadie will work with workshop participants to create written and spoken poetry that will form part of a multimedia group exhibition to be held at the library during January – February 2018. The exhibition will showcase poetry produced by workshop participants – the exhibition will include an audio recording of each poem accompanied by a photographic portrait of poet and poem.

Each workshop will explore the connection between place and belonging / what it means to feel connected or disconnected to the ground your standing on / how do we create connection to a place that is not our home?The project defines poetry as words written from the heart. Workshops will explore free-verse, Dadaism, narrative,  lyrical, eco-poetics, and spoken-word approaches to writing poetry.

People of all ages and backgrounds are invited to attend one or all workshops. All materials will be provided.

Summer Slam 2018 Heat 2

Southwark Hotel

77 Port Road, Thebarton, South Australia 5031
Saturday 20th January

$6 entry
7.30pm sign up for 8.00 start

It’s back. The have-a-go, all about the fun ‘off-season’ Spoken Word SA poetry slam. And with a professional wrestling inspired name what else would you expect? It’s all about newbies and the oldies with new material. Heat 2 is at a great, country town style, family run pub a free tram trip out of the city.

Three heats and a final. Each heat will see three people go through to the final and to round out the ten finalists there will be a ‘Spoken Word SA wildcard’ who also gets through.

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult.

The exact same rules as the national finals. This means nothing to be performed that was used in the 2017 Australian Poetry Slam or before. But it is a great chance to craft some material for next years competition. www.australianpoetryslam.com/rules/
