Doors open 7:00pm for 7:30pm start
Get ready to sharpen your slam tools! The fallout from 2020 meant that 2021 started on a slow note for slam in SA. With the Australian Poetry Slam looming on the horizon, we wanted to give our poets a chance to get back on the stage! Practice competing with some new poems, brush up on the old ones, and have fun sharing your work with an audience. To get those poetry muscles warmed up, we’re putting the fire under your toes by doing this with only TWO HEATS and ONE FINAL. Five competitors from each heat will battle it out at Jive for prizes and glory. With only two opportunities to get through to the final, you’re going to want to make sure you get those heat dates in your calendar!
HEAT TWO will be taking place at the Joinery, a great little community venue next to the bus depot on Franklin St. Doors will open at 7.00pm for a 7.30pm start, with a $6 fee for both audience and competitors. We’re diving straight into the competition for this one – no feature act!
Poetry book prizes for the heats and runner-up at the final are kindly donated by Adelaide-based publisher Wakefield Press. www.wakefieldpress.com.au
