Slam Poetry is a NEW category. It is performance poetry.  Its aim is to really say something important.

It is punchy well aimed words that gel together in performance to create a powerful message.  Senior students may wish to look at Katie Mackie’s  award winning performance “Pretty”
This is not a competition purely for literacy but also creativity.
Prizes for both senior and  primary winners:
Picture Book ……  gear
Story …………….writing gear
Poem …………..writing gear

Slam Poetry undecided but at least a poetry pack!  Remember that sign language is also a way of “telling “a story or poem piece.
