Got something to say? Spoken Word SA is teaming up with Dithyrambia, Draw your (S)words, City Of Salisbury, The Southwark Hotel, Brick City Bar, Paroxysm Press, The Coffee Pot and Jive to present 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’re 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 – one poem, two minutes maximum, no props, no musical instruments, no costumes etc…
Click here to read the full rules.
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.
