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!
Last night I (and my gold jacket) won a heat of the WA Poetry Slam, for my performance of “The Bogan Rap” (I’ll post it soon). It’s the first slam I’ve ever won, so I’m pretty stoked! Now I’m through to the WA Finals, which are happening at the Bakery on Thurs 18 November.
Joining me at the Finals will be my esteemed colleague, The Byron Bard. I urge you to check out his website, as he is a master craftsman of words. http://www.myspace.com/a_damn_good_thrashing
