Canberra’s Champion Poet CJ Bowerbird has been featured in Scene:

Meet Canberra’s CJ Bowerbird — a poet who’s challenging the very notion of spoken word art. While yes, he could loosely be defined as a slam poet — a style in which he excels, mind you — CJ is constantly refining his craft by incorporating foreign influences like theatre and storytelling to supercharge his performances.

“I describe myself as a performance poet,” CJ explains. “I take equal measures of written poetry and performance to present it on ­stage to audiences. I have gotten to the stage where I have the opportunity to do more of the performance side of poetry through slam.
