Have you got fire in your heart for spoken word and a burning passion to be heard?

Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam National Champion or a keen punter ready to cheer?

From June to October 50 Slam Heats will burn across the nation, leading to 8 State Finals
and 1 National Final in Sydney. Join us at your local slam for red-hot wordsmithing.

You can write your own stuff in a Wordshop, jump on the mic for 2 minutes or just put your bum on a seat and be inspired!

Together, we can #writearevolution and #ignitethemic.



The National Final winner will receive a $10k Writer's Fest Tour!
