Writers #ignitethemic shredding taboos and inspiring standing ovations
What mashes a Canadian sound-artist, a 13-year-old Coffs Harbour wordsmith; a transgender Perth poet and 16 of the nation’s best spoken-word artists with a boom hot DJ?
Australian Poetry Slam (APS) combines stories, poems, theatre and hip-hop in an annual international performing writers’ program.
Kaie Kellough (Montreal) opens the 2018 APS National Final with his unique vocal performance - dismantling narrative, diaspora and noise.
Last year, you chose Solli Raphael and Jesse Oliver as your Slam Champions.
Watch their encore performances before they hand over those crowns.
The grand prize? An International Writers’ Festival tour to Ubud, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Canada.
APS - National Final is the closing event of Story-Fest: 3 day performing writers’ festival.
