Now celebrating 11 years, Australian Poetry Slam is one of largest and most respected performing writers programs in the world. It combines stories and poems with theatre and hip-hop.  

Judged by randomly chosen members of the crowd, one person will get the chance to perform their own words at the China Bookworm, Ubud, Byron and Sydney InternationalWriters' Festivals in 2016.  

APS National Final will feature a collaboration with Writing Through Fences, poems and stories from writers from refugee backgrounds.

The finals are the closing event of the Word Travels' Story Fest, 3-days of spoken word, poetry, stories lyrics and monologues.
