The 2022 Australian Poetry Slam is upon us!

We’re ready to be rocked by the talent of our South Australian competitors. If you have what it takes to wow the crowd and the judges, we want to see you on that stage. There will be five SA heats, each sending a winner and runner-up to the State Final. From there, the two highest-scoring poets will be sent to the National Final.

For anyone who wants to watch slam poetry at its finest and most entertaining, this is the event for you. Not everyone wants to compete – and we need audience members too! Cheer on the poets and enjoy the show… You might even get to be a judge.

The cost for both audience and performers is $10. Sign-up for competitors is on the night when the doors open at 6.30PM. There’s a limit of 20 poets per heat so make sure to get there on time.

You can’t sign up to compete in advance, but you are encouraged to pre-book your tickets to attend.
