Art forms collide when literature meets jazz in Australia’s most unique poetry slam! Take the stage to recite your poetry accompanied by some of Melbourne’s best jazz musicians. With no set themes or strict time limits, we invite you to explore and let your inner wordsmith emerge. Prepare to give the band a brief synopsis of your poem minutes before your appearance and they will improvise a live jazz soundscape to your reading.

Hosted by Dave Graney (RRR 102.7FM/Musician) participants will have the chance to win prizes when audiences vote for their favourite poet. With music provided by the Adam Rudegeair trio (Black Wax presenter, PBS 106.7FM), audiences are in for a treat. Witness unleashed creativity and meet new people in the relaxed atmosphere of our slam.
