A great Summer Slam season – familiar faces, veterans of the spoken word game and some fresh new talent stepping up at all of the heats provided us with some stunning new work and new faces that you will definitely be hearing more from. The final at Jive saw us entertained by Eugene Phoa‘s songs and Andrew Drake‘s words before our ten finalists hit the stage and provided the audience with plenty to think about and enjoy.
Congratulations to everyone who shared their work this summer but of course there can only be one winner (and a second and third!)
Well done to Jason Marsiglia for taking the Summer Slam 2018 Crown and to Caroline Reid in second and Wanling Liu in third.
