Australian Poetry Slam QLD

We are looking for Queensland’s next slam champion!

The search is again on for brave new voices to speak their mind at Qld Heats of the Australian Poetry Slam ‘20.

QPF will once again be running the Queensland Heats & Final of the Australian Poetry Slam (APS) in partnership with Word Travels. Despite a challenging set of circumstances in 2020, 9 heats and 3 workshops were delivered across 9 regions through a combination of live and online events to bring us this years 18 finalists.

Contestants had two minutes to own the stage, rock the mic and win over the crowd with their original spoken word poetry. Judges from the audience rated each performance and two worthy wordsmiths will carry on battling it out at the QLD State Final on Saturday 10th October at The Zoo to find out which 2 poets will go on to represent QLD in this year’s APS final.
