Poetry, as always, is the real winner.

The Front Slam slams on frontwards!

Canberra Poetry Slam: WORD INJECTION

In August the Canberra Poetry Slam features the Interstate Poets Jackson (WA) and Jennifer Compton (NSW), as well as launch the latest Burley Journal.

The night will commence with the Open Mike at 8pm. Open Mike is an opportunity for experienced poets and spoken word artists, and those trying for the very first time, to read out any piece they wish. It can be prose, poems, other peoples words or the rambling randlings you come up with in front of the mic.

The Slam will commence around 8:15pm. The Slam rules:
– 3 minute limit
– 1 poem that you have composed
– no props or musical accompaniment

If you would like to compete, just find the two hosts during the course of the night and sign up.

The Canberra Poetry Slam prizes are sponsored by Palace Cinemas. The night will be hosted by JC Inman and Varisht Gosain.

The feature acts will be two interstate poets: Jackson (http://www.proximitypoetry.com/) from Western Australia and Jennifer Compton (http://redroomcompany.org/poet/jennifer-compton/) from New South Wales.

It’s on the 30th of August… they seem to have neglected to mention that in their press release…
