Trans Poetry Slam • Finals

  • Hares & Hyenas 63 Johnston Street Fitzroy, VIC, 3065 Australia (map)

Calling all trans and gender diverse spoken word artists!

In a world that never seems to have enough space for us, where we must always moderate ourselves, so that others can tolerate us, we are claiming a place that has always been a home for us.

Wednesday 17 July (heats) and Thursday 18 July (finals) will be the first ever Trans Poetry Slam. For rules, refer to the Australian Poetry Slam website (strict 2 minute time limit). Heats will feature (up to) 20 poets, with the top 8 scoring poets returning the following night to determine the champion!

First Prize: $250
Second Prize: $150
Plus door prizes available for our gorgeous audience members thanks to community donations.

Pre-book your tickets to the heats and finals now to avoid missing out on seeing Melbourne’s best TGD spoken word artists!
