About this event

Wordcraft is proud to present that 2022 Australian Poetry Slam's Melbourne Final!

Hosted by 2020 Champion, Ren Alessandra, the top 2 poets of this poetry slam will go onto represent Melbourne in the Victorian State Final at the State Library of Victoria on October 12th.

Each poet has 2 minutes to perform a piece of original poetry to the audience whose judges will vote and crown the winners to represent our city.

Come join us for a night of poetry slam magic, see what this art form has to offer and click the poets all the way to the stage!

At the Fitzroy Art Collective, we have a designated Soft Space for neurodivergent and other folk who might prefer to sit separate from the main crowd, sound and lights.

We have wine, books, cookies and cats, come join us!

This event is BYO and is suitable for 18+. Minors (15-18) are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult or guardian with the awareness of alcohol consumption and that poetry is uncensored and will likely explore mature themes.

Wordcraft acknowledges its practice on stolen Wurundjeri land. We pay our respects to all elders and thank them for spoken word. For all the stories we have heard and for everything we are yet to learn. Always was, always will be.
