Australian Poetry Slam SA Heat 2

Concert or Performance

26 Aug 2022 Annual Event

The search is on to find Australia’s best spoken word poet!

We’re ready to be rocked by the talent of our South Australian competitors. If you have what it takes to wow the crowd and the judges, we want to see you on that stage.

There will be five SA heats, each sending a winner and runner-up to the State Final. From there, the two highest-scoring poets will be sent to the National Final to slug it out for the coveted title of Australian Slam Poet 2022.

For anyone who wants to watch slam poetry at its finest and most entertaining, this is the event for you. Not everyone wants to compete – and we need audience members too! Cheer on the poets and enjoy the show you might even get to be a judge.

Slam contestants sign up at 6.30 for 7.00 start. 20 maximum.

Our guest performer for the evening is Rachael Mead.

The rules are simple. There are no props, no costumes, and no music allowed; just the poet and their words. Judges are selected at random from the audience. Have a read of the rules here:
