Australian Poetry Slam 2017 - Cairns Heat
Wed 02 Aug
Contestants have two minutes to own the stage, rock the mic and win over the crowd with their original spoken word poetry.
Judged by the audience, two wordsmith warriors will carry on to battle it out at the QLD State Final on Sunday 27 August at the Queensland Poetry Festival.
Featuring special guest MC, Anisa Nandaula who is the 2016 QLD Slam Champ, plus a local music act on the night.
For competitors, heat sign-up opens 30 minutes before the event start time (sign up on the night only.) Only the first 20 competitors to sign up may compete, so get in quick.
