Slammed it…

I was amazed at the performance standards at Friday night’s Poetry Slam SA State Finals at the Goodwood Institute. The poets keep getting younger and better – and it’s great to see two young women Amy Watson and Roisin Murphy-Haines taking out  first and second (and the right to compete at the Sydney Opera House.) Both performances were passionate and nuanced. Roisin tied and had to produce a second poem (in my opinion even better than the first) to take second place. Thanks to Spoken Word SA for your continued support for poetry performance in South Australia.
