The Canberra Poetry Slam at The Front

By johnboy - 19 July 2012 1


This in from Rutager Inmania:

Canberra Poetry Slam – Jazz Slam!

This month, Canberra’s longest running poetry slam will blend swing music and poetry on the 27th of July. The venue is the Front Cafe and Gallery in Lyneham and it kicks off at 7:30.

The Slam begins with an open mic, so if you feel competition cramps your style or your poetry doesn’t suit the guidelines, still come along and share.

The Jazz Slam will feature a 3 piece swing band who will entertain the audience and provide introduction music for the competitors.

The Feature Poet of the night is Canberran poetry superstar, Andrew Galan, who has had numerous poems published in varied journals, books and anthologies, but is better known as the founder of Canberra’s rival slam Bad!Slam!No!Biscuit!.

The slam rules:
poem must be your own
no props, musical accompaniment
Less than 3 minutes long

The Poetry Slam is brought to you by two hosts, Varisht Gosain (otherwise known as the Flying V) and J.c. Inman and of course the good people of the Front Cafe and Gallery.
