Tell your story and stay connected during this age of social distancing!
2020 Australian Poetry Slam events will be held online via Zoom.
Now in its third year at City Recital Hall, we will be transforming the honesty and energy of our live performances into a virtual package and delivering it straight to your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Register in advance of the event to participate or cheer along! You will receive a Zoom link a few days before the event via email. Please note that poets registrations are capped at 20 and audience registrations are capped at 75.
From July to October, APS heats and workshops will connect storytellers across the nation, leading to eight State Finals and the National Final.
Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam Champion?
Poets have two minutes to perform their original work; no props, no costumes, no music. Judges are randomly chosen from the online audience. The two highest-scoring poets will go on to the Sydney Final.
Hosted by Miles Merrill.
In the interests of maintaining fairness, poets must perform in their local heat to be eligible. Please get in touch with your local heat organisers to confirm your eligibility.

Word Travels and the Australian Poetry Slam acknowledge that we work, live and tell stories on unceded Indigenous land. We pay respect to their elders past, present and emerging. Always was First Nations land. Always will be.
