"Sink your talons in and have emotions soar. Poets, it’s time to spread your words. You’ve got two minutes on the mic to coo and caw. Audience, chirp in, be the wind beneath their wings. Judges, choose your two messengers to represent Doncaster in the Melbourne Final! Poetry Slams and wordshops are landing across the nation from July to October. It all leads to the National Final at Sydney Opera House and a prize worth $20,000, including publishing opportunities and gigs from Byron to Bali and beyond. Poets must perform in their residing state or territory to be eligible. Full APS 2024 rules here: www.australianpoetryslam.com/rules Don’t want to just wing it?
