The JAFA Poetry Slam proudly announces the Auckland Regional Slam Finals on Wednesday September 28th!
Come catch the best of the best battle it out to be crowned Auckland City Slam Champion and the chance to represent Auckland at the New Zealand National Slam Finals in Hamilton this November.
After slamming it out over the past several months for a chance to get here, the Top 10 poets will go head to head in a bloodbath of words, honesty, and brave performances in this final slam heat. The poets will compete in three knockout rounds, judged by members of the audience, to determine who the Top 2 poets going to the Nationals will be!

Hosted by American National Poetry Slam Champion Ken Arkind and the 4th ranked female poet in world Carrie Rudzinski, this is not Just Another Freaking Auckland Poetry Slam!
