South Australian Heat 1
Friday 21th August 2020
181 Hindley Street Adelaide
6.30pm sign up for 7pm start
$6 entry for audience and competitors
Contestants have 2 minutes to speak, scream, howl, whisper or sing their original poem. There are no props, no costumes, no music: just the poet and the words. Judges are selected at random from the audience. The heat winners compete again in the SA State Final and the two top finalists then go on to compete in the Australian Poetry Slam National Showcase.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be a COVID-safety plan in place. Amongst other things, this means we need to record contact information for everyone attending to allow contact tracing in the event of a virus outbreak. To make things easier on the night, if you are considering coming along, please fill in the following form in advance, so then we can simply tick you off. The information on the form will only be used for contact tracing should it become necessary.
Please note that filling in the form does not register you for competing on the night: you still need to sign up from 6:30 – 7:00pm at the venue.
