From the ABC's website:
Radio National's daily arts and music program, the Deep End, has been seeking submissions from writers who want to perform their work in Australia's first national poetry slam.
The finalists have now been announced. They are:
Murray Jennings (WA)
Joe Mitchell (ACT)
Jayne Fenton Keane (Qld)
Benny Walter (Tas)
Pru Gell (NT)
James Dennison (SA)
John James Bayly (Vic)
Jess Cook (NSW)
Klare Lanson (Wildcard)
On Wednesday November 24 the slam will come to radio audiences across Australia, when one writer from each state and territory will perform a two-minute poem live on the Deep End.
Their details will also be published on this website and listeners will then have one week to decide the winner by lodging an online vote for their favourite performance.
The winner will have their work professionally recorded by the ABC and profiled on the Deep End.
