Australian Poetry Slam: have your say
Get ready to have your say and see spoken word artist Miles Merrill perform when he hosts the Australian Poetry Slam 08 competition. There will be two heats in the Central West:
Macquarie Regional Library, Dubbo
Saturday 13 September at 2.30pm
Orange City Library, Orange
Thursday 18 September at 6.30pm.
We are looking for poets, hip hop artists, storytellers and other outspoken wordsmiths to speak, scream, howl or whisper or sing your original poem, rhyme, rap or story. Performers can sign up from 30 mins before the start and have 2 minutes at the microphone to impress the judges. Be in the audience to have a chance of being picked as a judge (tip – catch the frisbee). It is an electric live event and entertainment plus. Two winners from the Orange heat will win Sydney flights and accommodation courtesy of Orange Regional Arts Foundation to be able to attend the State Final at the State Library of NSW on Friday 21 November. Come along and be part of it. Call Orange City Library on 6393 8132 for more details.
