Canberra Poetry Slam at the Front

Barcham 14 October 2013

Canberra’s Poets never stop fighting each other!

They can’t. They’re like sharks, but except instead of swimming, it’s fighting. And instead of water, it’s each other… Instead of fins they have waistcoats?

I’m losing control of that I’m saying.

Speaking of saying things, Tasnim Hossein, Aaron Kirby, Will Small, Zoe Erskine, Zohab Zee Khan, Omar Musa, and Ellie Malbon will all be doing exactly that there!

That is quite a list.

In 2013 we have been very very lucky to have had some amazing Feature Acts grace the Canberra Poetry Slam stage this year.

So for the October Slam we will be featuring a whole bunch of them, plus a very special Guest!

The night commences at 8pm with the Open Mike session, followed by a small slam where 8 poets will compete against each other. We will then move into presenting sets from our feature poets!

What: Canberra Poetry Slam Presents: Slam Super Sets
When: Friday, the 25th of October at 8pm
Where: The Front Gallery and Cafe, Wattle Place, Lyneham
