WTF? WHAT IS GOING ON!
Join us in building our own poetry slam culture here in Perth, Western Australia. We welcome you to be part of our growing Slam Family – our “Slamily”.
Whether you wanna slam a poem or simply enjoy some short bursts of entertaining poetry from Perth poets as they slam their original stuff for you – we want you!
Our Perth Slam crew have coordinated the WA Heats and Final of the Australian Poetry Slam since its inception in 2007. And we’ve been doing this kinda stuff (hosting performance poetry events) since 1995!
In 2015 we introduced our monthly slam event: Perth Slam – at the Rosemount Hotel in North Perth, where the winner takes the door.
Our basic aim is to build a Perth poetry slam community, to give aspiring slam poets a regular opportunity to share their new works – with a view for a local WA poet to win the national final of the Australian Poetry Slam.
In 2017 WA Poet Jesse Oliver was crowned the APS 2017 Adult Champ!
