Competing poets must register between 6:30pm and 6:45pm to compete! Remember, slammers don't pay the full entry free, but $5 to register, which goes toward fundraising to send a team of poets to the US to compete in the Slamalamadingdong team.
Slamalama (for short) is a 3-round PSI-certified Poetry Slam, which means it’s 3 rounds of poets, performing 3 minutes per poem for the chance to represent Australia in worldwide poetry slams.

We honour founder Marc Smith’s “Slam Papi” Philosophy and offers the absolute highest calibre of locally and internationally acclaimed featured artists.

Tim Evans is still recovering from being English and can be found performing his poems at gigs and slams all over Melbourne and beyond. His hobbies are anxiety, depression and jokes and he often does them all at the same time. He’s been published on Audacious Vol. 4, has featured at The Dan O’Connell, Owl & Cat Readings, Poetry at Tago Mago and Poet’s Corner and was a Slamalongdingdong 2017 finalist. Several people have said nice things about his poetry but have refused to go on the record. He likes using self-deprecation but he isn’t very good at it.
