A feast for poetry lovers

Yankalilla's poetry slam this Saturday, April 20, from 1pm to 4pm will be a feast, both for poets and those who enjoy poetry.

It will be an event to mark on the calendar, as the skills of poets will be on show.

Compered by Nigel Ford from high profile group, Friendly Street Poets, the slam has significant prizes.

Audiences are in for an entertaining treat and it is suitable for ages 18 and over.

It is an afternoon perfect for poets who can pick up the microphone for the open session and have a chance to make their writing pay.

The prizes are fantastic.

First prize is $500; 2nd $200; finalists $50 each and people's choice $50.

Poets can register online, or at the Festival Hub from 12noon to 12.45pm on the day.
