But… Summer Slam is also about introducing new people to slam poetry, about having some fun and sharing your words. So no ‘big’ prizes, no interstate trips, no ‘real’ pressure – just the chance to get up and share with a little cash, chocolates and books and dvds as prizes.

Five heats and a summer slam final – first two from each heat go into the final.

Stay tuned for more details of individual heats…

Registration from 7pm.
$5 door/entry
