  • Details

No props. No music. No costumes. Just you, your words and a mic—you've got two minutes to make the crowd scream your name.

Miles Merrill, performance poet and founder of Australian Poetry Slam, and award-winning teacher Narcisa Nozica will take you from novice to spoken word superstar in no time. Twenty years after Merrill introduced slam poetry to Australia, there’s a national competition with a live audience of 20 000 people, and it’s taught in schools across the country. It’s been nothing short of a revolution!

With tips from stars of the Australian poetry slam scene, including best-selling author Maxine Beneba Clarke, Slam Your Poetry provides step-by-step instructions and exercises that will inspire you to:

1. Write a poem that pops
2. Rehearse like a winner
3. Wow your audience
4. Beat stage fright
5. Run a winning competition for your school or community group.

Part how-to guide, part masterclass, part manifesto, this book will help teachers, students and wannabe performance poets of all ages slam like a pro.
