Australian Poetry Slam 08 NSW State Final Winners
Congratulations to Greg North from Katoomba, and Andrew Riemer of Parramatta the State champions for the Australian Poetry Slam. The contest was very close, sometimes only a decimal point the difference between the “slammers”. Congrats to our finalists Josh Simpson and Shannon Elliott who were able to attend with the support of the Orange Regional Arts Foundation funding flights and accommodation.
