WA Stuff: Slam at the PICA BAR!

This is a callout to all poets, hip-hop artists and other outspoken wordsmiths: polish your werd, shine your rhymes and lip-spittle your lyrics for the AUSTRALIAN POETRY SLAM 2007 - with over $10,000 in cash and prizes on offer! What is a poetry slam..?

Slam heats are being held in city centres and regional venues across Australia between June and November 2007. Two finalists from each slam heat will compete in their state’s final, and the two top point scorers from each state final will travel to Sydney in December to battle it out for the national title at the State Library of NSW.

All contestants are given a mic, a live audience and just two minutes to impress the judges (selected at random at each heat) with their original spoken word, poetry, hip hop, monologues and stories.

Local spoken-word artists from each participating state and territory will host the slam heats and state finals, as well as entertain audiences with their own word artistry.
