Main entry, Swanston St
Following the rounds of hotly contested heats across the state, our finest spoken-word performers come together at the State Library to battle it out for the title of Victoria’s best slam poet.
Performances are judged by a panel randomly selected from the audience. The competition will be fierce, as winners compete for a coveted place in the national final and the chance to win trips to international writing festivals.
Hosted by comedian and DJ Andrew McClelland, with a special guest performance by World Poetry Slam winner Buddy Wakefield, the evening promises to be high-energy fun.
Check out the full program of heats on the poetry slam website.
