Members of Darebin Decibels will kick off the SLAM as MC comedian and writer Lauren Bok drives the afternoon with young poets performing their works in under two minutes. With no topics off-limits, teens are empowered to approach the mic in a non-competitive and fun environment. Registration is FREE, by Wednesday 14 September.

In the lead-up to the SLAM, would-be poets are invited to the Teen Poetry Performance Workshop with poet and performer Amanda Anastasi (convener of La Mama Poetica). Writers can hone their pieces, or create new ones, while learning how to perform poetry, work on stage presence, voice projection and tips on how to memorise their writing.
