About the Event


Write a revolution. Write to speak. Write to be heard in Australia’s largest performance poetry competition!


For Poets please register HERE


For Audience members please register HERE


Hosted by Ren Alessandra, poets have two minutes to perform their original work; no props, no costumes, no music. Judges are randomly chosen from the audience. The two highest-scoring poets will represent Coffs Harbour in the NSW Final!

From June to October, APS heats and workshops connect storytellers across the nation, leading to eight State Finals and the National Final as part of Story Week 2021.

Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam Champion?

Poets must perform in their residing state or territory to be eligible. Full APS 2021 rules here: www.australianpoetryslam.com/rules

Word Travels and the Australian Poetry Slam acknowledge that we work, live and tell stories on unceded Indigenous land. We pay respect to their elders past, present and emerging. Always was First Nations land. Always will be.
