We showcase the vibrancy of Queensland and Australia’s poetry communities by supporting emerging and developing poets and celebrating the depth and breadth of poetic expression in all its guises. We value the work of our poets and spoken word artists and foster a culture of poetic innovation and cultivate artistic excellence, showcasing world-class poetry to Queensland audiences.

SlammED! is Queensland Poetry Festival’s schools’ program. The model engages with upper primary and secondary students through a program of workshops, masterclasses and slam performances, culminating in a SlammED! Final, held at the Judith Wright Centre as part of the wider annual Poetry Festival. It is delivered by our QPF program manager and a team of professional poet mentors.

Poetry is an incredibly powerful educational tool as well as a way of tackling mental health issues and building resilience in young people. SlammED!’s purpose is to work with schools both on an educational and a youth development level.

Outcomes from the program include—empowering young people to ‘find their voice’, and to have free expression as part of their mental wellness development journeys.
