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. Read more about Poetry Slam finalist Josh Simpson in this newspaper article:

The State finalists now go on to the National Grand Slam at the Sydney Opera House on Thursday 4 December 7pm. Tickets are $20 and for bookings call (02) 9250 7777 or listen to the ABC Local Radio webcast live from 6.30pm on the night.
