FEATURE POET – ANDI STEWART
Three-time Australian Poetry Slam nationalist finalist, Andi Stewart lives and breathes poetry. A fixture in nipaluna/Hobart, they founded WhamBamSilverSlam! and ROWDY, have worked for Byron Writers Festival, TasPride, NAYRI NIARA Good Spirit Festival, and Hobart Writer’s Festival, and have featured at multiple events including GriffithSlam, Rye Words at Dark Mofo, and Slamalamadingdong. Their words transcend boundaries and gender barriers to hit galactic metaphors and meta cognitive rhymes; exploring all things queer, Christian, political, and progressive, with a little side of love.
SUPPORT FEATURE – REN ALESSANDRA
Ren is a Melbourne based poet and librarian. Still pretty new to the scene, she won her first ever slam at GriffinSpeak during the MSWP Festival and was shortlisted for the Melbourne Spoken Word Prize last year and is currently working on her first collection. Her writing is currently exploring her reframing of relationships with her self and those around her and the breaking down of walls that are built before us, not for us.
POETRY SLAM RULES
Maximum of 15 participants in the online slam. Everyone is welcome, from bedroom poets to experienced performers. Please register in advance of the event.
3 min time limit, no props or costumes, share your original poems, stories, raps, rants and monologues with a live and engaged audience.

But remember: The points are not the point, the point is poetry!
