OutLoud is unique because it’s a team event. Each member relies on the others to get the best out of their original poetry and everyone contributes to the amazing result.
Last year’s winners were Braemar College, and it’s worth taking a couple of minutes to see their astonishing performance.
In 2014 the OutLoud Competition is being supported by the City of Melbourne Arts Program, which has allowed us to expand the competition. For the first time, two preliminary finals will take place prior to the Grand Final on August 26th.
Which means more schools can take part! And we’re helping them to do this via a program of workshops aimed at giving more students than ever the chance to get up close and personal with their inner performer through slam poetry. They’ll also get tips on how to take on other teams in the competition itself.
The workshops are run by experienced – and really enthusiastic! – performance poets. To sign up your school, go to Australian Poetry: Email or phone: 9094 7828
