Poetry Slam Queensland Final 2012

Congratulations to our 2012 Queensland Slam Champion Jo Sri, and runner up Eleanor Jackson!

After months of slam heats across the state, on Friday 7 September 2012, 18 finalists battled it out for the Queensland Slam Championship to a sold out crowd of over 270 people.

Our two Queensland champs will now sharpen their words, reading to take on the best of the best at the Australian Poetry Slam national final in Sydney on 1 December.

Poetry Slams are explosive live events where contestants have two minutes at the microphone to woo the audience with their verbal panache.
