Slamalamadingdong! "New Shit" Slam featuring Team Slama

  • The Melba Spiegeltent 35 Johnston Street Collingwood, VIC, 3066 Australia (map)

Join Slama for July to send off Team Slama to the National Poetry Slam, and warm up for the new season. This month it's a special off-season "new shit" slam where first time slammers get their name in the hat twice, and poets who've slammed before have to do brand new poems, at least in the first round. It's to encourage new poets and challenge regulars. We can't wait for a fresh new season with new poets and new poems.

Carryover names that weren't drawn in April, will be held until August, the first slam of the season that counts toward NPS Grand Slam points.

Slamalama (for short) is a 3-round PSI-certified Poetry Slam, held on the last Thursday of every month, which means it's 3 rounds of poets, performing 3 minutes per poem for the chance to represent Australia in worldwide poetry slams.

Doors Open 7pm
Slam starts 7.30pm SHARP
Early Bird: $15 (until July 13)
Pre-Booking/Concession: $18
