The Summer Slam 19 Final went off big time at Jive Nightclub! Congratulations to our winner Mika Friebel, runner up, Pam Makin, close third, Riley Kamp and all the fine wordsmiths who took part in this year’s events.
The SWSA Poet-in-Residence program has been running since 2014, offering poets a chance to explore their work in the settings of the Adelaide City Council City Library, using their facilities including digital archives, media lab, audio and visual facilities and more. From exploring the history of Polish immigrants in the city to lost-and-found objects and Ekphrasis (look it up, we did!), this residency gives poets a chance to step out of their comfort zone, engage the public and, most importantly, create new work.
The Poet-in-Residence will be given 16 hours during April 2019 to work from a studio space provided within the library, and will additionally create at least one opportunity to present or perform their work. All ideas and applications are welcome. Poetry might be written, spoken, and/or expressed in another form.
Extended deadline for applications: 9pm, Monday, 25th March, 2019.
