Read ‘The Bogan Rap’ – the slam piece I performed at the Sydney Theatre Company last night, as part of the Australian Poetry Slam.
It was such an amazing night, with so many moving performances. I felt lucky to be able to watch all the finalists perform. One of the highlights had to be watching Kamahl perform ‘Invictus’, and having him later congratulate me on my performance. And that voice – it is mesmerizing.
The results came in, and Perth didn’t win, but as Allan Boyd always says – the real winner was POETRY.

Fellow Perth poet David Vincent Smith and I will be representing WA in the Australian Poetry Slam national finals this Sunday! We’re flying over to Sydney to perform at the finals, which are being held at the Sydney Theatre Company. I can’t wait to see all the poets from around Australia perform; it’s sure to be a great night of spoken word. If you’re in Sydney this weekend, check it out!
