This month, WestWords, West Side Poetry Slam and Word Travels have partnered to present to you the Parramatta heat of the 2020 Australian Poetry Slam!

Tell your story and stay connected during this age of social distancing!

2020 Australian Poetry Slam events will be held online via Zoom. APS is transforming the honesty and energy of live performances into a virtual package and delivering it straight to your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Register in advance of the event to participate or cheer along!

Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam Champion?

Poets have two minutes to perform their original work; no props, no costumes, no music. Judges are randomly chosen from the online audience. The two highest-scoring poets will go on to represent Paramatta in the Western Sydney Final.

In the interests of maintaining fairness, poets must perform in their local heat to be eligible. Please get in touch with your local heat organisers to confirm your eligibility.

When: August 19, 7-9pm
Where: Zoom
Cost: FREE
