Australian Poetry Slam — Brisbane Heat

Queensland Poetry Festival

This event is now in the past.

Are you Queensland’s next slam champion?

The search is on for brave new voices to speak their mind as part of Australian Poetry Slam 2017. Contestants have two minutes to hit the mic with their original spoken word poetry.

Three heats will be held in Brisbane, with other heats and workshops held throughout the state until the Slam final on Saturday 27 August.  Visit for full details of all heats and workshops.

Presented in partnership with Queensland Poetry Festival and UQ’s Symposium Poetry Society.
