Australian Poetry Slam (APS) aims to capture the voices of our nation, the ones that often go unheard in mainstream media. This year, the APS returns to Newcastle with the 2019 Regional Finals. This final will draw winners from slam heats in Newcastle, the Central Coast, and beyond. The winning poets at this Regional Final would qualify for spots in the 2019 NSW Poetry Slam Final.
Are you coming?
Our festival is 100% free. It’s always free. But this year, National Young Writers’ Festival is asking for you to register for the festival. Registering for our festival means you can help us maintain and secure our ongoing funding. We rely on funding to provide this opportunity to artists and audiences. We need to understand who exactly we provide this opportunity to.
Can you support NYWF?
During registration, you’ll see an opportunity to buy a NYWF supporter ticket. If you love our festival, we encourage to help support our festival by becoming an NYWF supporter. The “ticket” doesn’t get you into anything extra, it’s a contribution to support the ongoing running costs of our festival: which is 100% free to attend!
