Spoken Word SA (SWSA) exists to connect poets and communities, nurture their development, and provide a platform through which poets can share their work via open readings, workshops, invited performance opportunities, and networking, with the long-term aim of leading SA’s spoken word culture into a strong and sustainable future.

SWSA is caretaker of the SA component of the Australian Poetry Slam and co-ordinates Spoken Word in South Australia. It also supports a Poet-in-Residence program in collaboration with the Adelaide City Library and runs a variety of workshops for schools and other interested community groups.

SWSA supports and adheres to the principles of workplace safety for women in the arts. Click here read the full statement.
