When is the next slam?
Welcome to Perth’s most popular and only regular Poetry Slam! Where you can win ALL OF THE MONEY. And the audience is the judge!
PERTH’S ONLY GET RICH QUICK SCHEME FOR POETS!
Perth Slam organises WA’s only monthly poetry slam!
We do it every last Saturday of the month in the cozy Four5Nine bar at the Rosemount Hotel in North Perth.
Aspiring Slam Poets get two minutes to impress the audience with a two-minute poem. Randomly chosen judges score each poet and the highest score wins the door takings!
Best way to find out whats happening each month is to get over to our Perth Slam FACEBOOK page and follow us for all the latest info.
We also coordinate the WA Heats of the Australian Poetry Slam.
All people of all ages are very welcome to enter the slam comp or just consume the poetry (under-18s do need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian – we’re in a licensed bar).

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.
Come on down and be part of the linguistic fitness…
