Australian Poetry Slam - Heat

Concrete paths, riverside walks, libraries, classrooms, your doorstep, your palm… when venues closed, we found poetry everywhere. This is your call to listen, watch and cheer. Australian Poetry Slam pops up stages near you. The door is open. The mic is on. Push into the crowd and find your spot. Audience! You may be chosen as a judge. Poets! You have two minutes to spit, howl, dance, whisper and dream out-loud. Perform your original work; no props, no costumes, no music. The two highest-scoring poets will represent Merri-bek in the Melbourne Final!
