Dear poetry slam family,
unfortunately there will be no Summer Slam this year.
2020 was tough and the start of 2021 is no different. Everyone managed to contribute a great deal to getting the SA leg of the 2020 Australian Poetry Slam done and dusted. We are very proud of our volunteers and very grateful not only to everyone who competed but everyone who attended as audience members. We made it happen because we simply had to. But we are under-resourced, unfunded and, quite frankly, exhausted.
So please all explore your local poetry community and see what other events you can be involved in while we take a short breather from slamming. One good place to keep up to date on what’s happening around town is the Adelaide Poetry Gig Guide on Facebook
We look forward to seeing you all at the 2021 SA Poetry Slam later in the year.
In the meantime, you can relive some of the best of recent SA Slam events on the SWSA Youtube channel:
