Are you ready to witness the freshest words and voices of 2023? We are!

We’re kicking off a big year for South Australian spoken word with our annual Summer Slam. All the standard slam rules apply – two-minute time limit, no props, no costumes etc. Scroll down to see the full set of rules for 2023.

This year, the SA Summer Slam will have THREE HEATS. The top three scoring poets from each heat will go to the final. To make up our ten finalists, the Spoken Word SA team will be choosing a WILD CARD! There are always stand-out competitors who perform amazing work but don’t quite get the scores to go through. This year, we will be watching the heats closely to pick one such competitor to send through to the final.

Sign up for poets happens at the event as soon as the doors open – for HEAT ONE that’s 10.00am for a 10.30am start.

⭐⭐ There will most likely be tickets at the door, but we encourage both poets and audience to book ahead! Click here to book. ⭐⭐

It’s time to get writing! We can’t wait to see what you’ve got to show us!
