Annabelle Richens


Annabelle Richens is a Year 11 student who discovered slam poetry after a particularly deep YouTube binge and - after some terrible first attempts to recreate what she saw - has been competing ever since. In 2018 Annabelle won the Newtown heat of the APS competition and progressed to the Sydney Final, and this year placed 3rd at the 2019 APS Youth Slam final after a win in Manly and will be competing at the Sydney Final again. She loves drama and performance, her dog, and that one lady at the canteen who puts extra butter on the banana bread.
