This is the rough diamond in the crown of the poetry calendar, where poets set aside the niceties and throw down like their lives depend on it. Did they nail it? You be the judge: the audience rules at the Poetry Slam. Hosted by Doc Drumheller and Ciaran Fox.
If you’d like to compete, throw your hat in the ring at the preliminary heat on Wednesday, 3 August, 7pm at Space Academy, 371 St Asaph St, $10 at the door.
