Do you love words and the way they sound out loud? Have you ever been to a poetry slam? The Bankstown poetry slam is a monthly spoken word competition that celebrates the cultural diversity of south west Sydney. Slam poets perform original poems on any subject in front of a live audience. Recently the first Poetry Slam Olympics was held in Sydney. What are some of the themes the poets in this clip explore in their poems? Pick an issue or theme you feel strongly about and use it as inspiration for your own poem. Pay special attention to the way it sounds out loud. Why not perform it for someone?
