War of Words

On Friday, September 26, you’re invited to battle it out spoken-word style for a $50 cash prize in the latest OneWord Poetry Slam.

In this competition, wordsmiths will be given a microphone, a live audience and two minutes to impress five randomly selected judges.
Rachel Morley of the Writing and Society Research Group, UWS, will host and there will be three special guest artists on the night - spoken word artist, rhymer, actor and freestyle MC, Bravo Child; performance poet and puppet master, Mize; and original singer/songwriter Ashley Kerr, who was the winner of the August OneRhythm band slam.

The only rule for the evening: Slam contestants are to perform an original piece, using no props.

The New Writers Group Inc will also name a literary prize winner and runner-up winner on the night.

The slam will be held at the Mars Hill Cafe, 331 Church Street, Parramatta.
Entry is $5 for contestants, and free for audience members.
Register from 7.30pm for an 8pm start.
Details: Isabell Petrinic, 0424 947 493 or at
