MORE POETS NEEDED FOR THE FIRST HEAT!!

Perth - Get Ready to Slam!

Kicking off Wednesday 24th February at the Blue Room Theatre in
Northbridge, the Perth Poetry Slam provides an opportunity for Perth
poets to perform their original work to an audience - and Perth
audiences the chance to be entertained by short bursts of contemporary
poetry.

In the spirit of the Australian Poetry Slam, contestants are given a
microphone, a live audience and just two minutes to impress the randomly
selected audience judges, with their original spoken word, poetry,
hip-hop, monologues - or whatever.

Perth Poetry Slam heats run each Wednesday night until the final on 17th
March.


Three finalists from each slam heat will compete in the final. The
overall winner will take home prizes - and the coveted Perth Poetry Slam
Cup!

The Perth Poetry Slam series is part of The Blue Room's 21 Summer Nights
program.

Contestants can register at the www.perthpoetryslam.com website.
