Microwave clock keeps poet on time

In the latest edition of the Orange Photo News newspaper a previous entrant in the Australian Poetry Slam competition shares her secret for sticking to the 2 minute time limit by using a microwave timer. 11 year-old Amy says she is no rapper but loves rhyming and speaking to a beat and took part in last year's event. The Australian Poetry Slam 08 Heat is being held at Orange City Library on Thursday 18 September at 6.30pm with performers allowed to sign up from 6pm. There is a limit of 20 contestants for the heat. Check out the display at Orange City Library for more details on rules, Poetry Slams and inspiration or go to www.wordsoutwest.com.au.
