Summer Slam 2018!

It’s back. The have-a-go, all about the fun ‘off-season’ Spoken Word SA poetry slam. And with a professional wrestling inspired name what else would you expect? It’s all about newbies and the oldies with new material.

Three heats and a final. Each heat will see three people go through to the final and to round out the ten finalists there will be a ‘Spoken Word SA wildcard’ who also gets through.

The exact same rules as the national finals. This means nothing to be performed that was used in the 2017 Australian Poetry Slam or before. But it is a great chance to craft some material for next years competition.
