Poetry SLAM

For poets who KNOW it – a fun and competitive evening of new SLAM poetry performance for over-18s.

Presented by Darebin Arts as part of FUSE 2022 Spring Festival

Are you a poet and you KNOW it? Poetry SLAM wants writers to perform their works on stage at Northcote Town Hall Arts Centre.  MC comic and writer Patrick Collins will keep the slam on the simmer, while entrants have up to three minutes to perform their original spoken word piece on any subject and in any style. Guest poets will also perform, to get the slam started.

Writers aged 18 and over from all backgrounds, cultures and abilities are urged to bring their stories and passions to life on stage.  Audience members will vote on their favourites and the winners will receive prizes from local Darebin traders.

Registration to perform or sit in the audience is FREE, please register by Wednesday 14 September.   

Please be aware this is an open-registration performance event and the content of the original works being performed have not been heard before, so there may be some triggering topics.
