Australian Poetry Slam - Bathurst Workshop

Do you want to slam? Imagine just you and the microphone. The audience is waiting for your words and your voice - two of the most powerful things you have.

Hone your poetry slam writing and performance skills at this special workshop with last year's Australian Poetry Slam Champion, Melanie Mununggurr-Williams. Learn expert tools and techniques to fire up your poetry and the spoken word.

Workshop is limited to 20 people and bookings are essential so get your ticket today at or phone 6333 6281.

The workshop will be directly followed by the Bathurst heat of the nationwide search for 2019's best slammer! Sign up at the library at 6.30pm for your chance in front of the mic, or just come and watch. Competition starts at 7pm.

During this event, poets have two minutes to perform their original work; no props, no costume, no music. Judges are randomly chosen from the audience.

From June to October, over 50 slam heats will be held across Australia, leading to eight State Finals and the National Final at the Sydney Opera House. For more information, visit
