Would you like to be involved in Australia's first and biggest spoken word event?
Spoken word is a powerful and unique medium, characterised by its strength and immediacy. Every year the Australian Poetry Slam supports and develops writers from every corner of Australia to express their ideas. This national competition reaches out to diverse audiences that keep growing, every year. The best spoken word artist is chosen from many, to showcase their work at literary events in Sydney, Byron Bay and Indonesia.
The Australian Poetry Slam is comprised of more than 50 events. It brings local audiences to events in 32 regions across the country. Events are highly participatory, with 720 people involved in coordinating, advocating and competing. Our national audience exceeded 4000 people in 2016.
The Word Travels community continually develops opportunities for local writers and performers. Become part of Australia's spoken word story. Join our international network of partners.
