NSW Poetry Slam Final

  • State Library of New South Wales Macquarie Street Sydney, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

7.00pm – 9.30pm

After ten explosive Australian Poetry Slam heats held all over NSW, from Moree to Sydney, from Byron Bay to Wagga Wagga, we've gathered the best poets from each region to share their words with you in a mind-blowing state final! Listen in as they go head to head for two spots in the Australian Poetry Slam - National Final at Sydney Opera House on Oct 16.

Judged by randomly chosen members of the crowd, this is a night of wild words where you can click your favourite poet to victory and boo the judges if they give the wrong score. 

One poet will be crowned NSW Slam Champion and offered an amazing APS Writers' retreat stay in 2017!


Featuring: Sabrina D'Angelo, John Maddox, and NSW Poets from every region of the state.

Host: Sunil Badami.
