Australian Poetry Slam is one of the largest and most respected performing writers programs in the world; combining stories, poems, theatre and hip-hop.

At the 2018 APS National Final, you chose Melanie Mununggurr-Williams as your Champion.

Who will this nationwide search unearth in 2019? What stories will explode in your mind, cause you to run onto stage, pump your fist and shout "Hell yeah! Me too!"

Judged by randomly chosen members of the crowd, one writer will be chosen to perform at Byron Writers FestivalUbud Writers and Readers Festival, Singapore Writers Festival, Hong Kong International Literary Festival and Canadian writers festivals.
