2013 Australian Poetry Slam: Victorian state final

After the rounds of hotly contested heats across the state, our finest spoken-word performers come together at the Library to battle it out for the title of Victoria’s best slam poet.

Performances are judged by a panel randomly selected from the audience. The competition will be fierce, as winners compete for a coveted place in the national final, and the chance to win trips to international writing festivals. The evening promises fast-paced, high-energy fun, with live entertainment and drinks at bar prices. Featuring comedian Josh Earl as MC.
