Summer Slam 2017 Heat 1

12 January, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm


At last, the first heat of the 2017 Summer Slam Season!

Speak, scream, howl, whisper, rap or sing your original poem at the 2017 South Australian Summer Slam. You’ve got two minutes, no props, no music, just you and your words. It’s interactive, expressive and fun. There’s prizes to be won, thoughts to be shared, chocolates to be eaten. Raise your voice and be heard!

These events will follow National Slam rules (see link below) – one poem, two minutes maximum, no props, no musical instruments, no costumes etc… 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. 

First two from each heat into the final at Jive on Friday 10th February 2017.
