Launceston Heat of the Australian Poetry Slam featuring Guest Poet Sara Mansour

Target audience: All ages welcome.

Event Type: The Launceston Heat of the Australian Poetry Slam 2018 will feature Guest Poet Sara Mansour, who is a lawyer, poet, women's rights advocate, founder and host of Sydney's Bankstown Poetry Slam and board member of NOW Australia - which aims to end sexual harassment, intimidation and abuse in the workplace.

Event Description: A Poetry Slam is where performance poetry meets competitive creativeness! It is loud, fast, fun and exciting! Up to 20 Tasmanian poets will be bringing their two-minute original work to the stage to impress the cheering, finger-clicking audience and the judges (who have been randomly selected from the audience) in the hope of winning a Place in the Tasmanian Final, and a chance to compete against Slammers from around Australia at the Sydney Opera House in October.

Venue: The Royal Oak Hotel, 14 Brisbane Street Launceston
