On the eve of new COVID-19 restrictions, Heat 2 of the Winter Warm-Up slam featured a strong set of highly personal performances from all the poets in front of an enthusiastic audience. Congratulations to winner Sally Newman, 2nd place Paul Kohn, 3rd Pam Makin, 4th Matthew Pankhurst and 5th Kerryn Tredrea. Sally cannot attend the final, so the last place in the final goes to Tegan Sabine after a closely-scored slam-off with Lexis Vhi.
We’re looking forward to seeing the 5 place-getters compete with the 5 place-getters from Heat 1 at the final, which will be at Jive on 8th July.
Stay tuned for any updates on the COVID-19 situation and any impact that will have on arrangements for the final.
