We've made our events free to make the online process simpler and our events more widely accessible. There is very little you need to book for this year and all information is on each event page. Here’s everything you need to know in one place.
You don’t have to RSVP but we’ve included it as an option on the event page for those of you who like to receive email reminders. We’ll send a video link with your reminder so you can click and watch. It’s that easy. You can RSVP for a reminder up until the day before the event.
Where are the video links?
If you don’t want to RSVP, you’ll find video links on the event page two weeks prior to the event. Or you can go straight to our YouTube channel or watch via Facebook Live. Follow us while you’re there.
WAM Zoom Slam
The WAM Zoom Slam is also free and it’s happening on Zoom for a maximum of 75 audience viewers and 20 performers. Click the booking button on the event page to book through TryBooking. You’ll be sent a zoom link a few days before the event. You’ll need to ensure you have Zoom installed on your device.
Poetry Slam Workshop
This is our only fee-paying event. It’s happening on Zoom for a maximum of 20 participants. Click the booking button on the event page to book and pay through TryBooking (+ 50 cent booking fee). You’ll be sent a zoom link a few days before the workshop. You’ll need to ensure you have Zoom installed on your device.
Ask the authors a question
Most of the author talks and panel discussions allow you to type and send a question via the video chat function. You’ll need to be logged into a google account or watching on Facebook to use chat.
Share the love
Despite the challenges, this year's program is amazing and we’re pretty excited that anyone with the internet can access it for free. Consider supporting us in one (or all) of the following ways:
- Help us spread the word by sharing our emails and socials
- Visit our donations page on TryBooking
- Complete our online survey. It’s not online yet but it will be soon. RSVP for one of our events or sign up for festival updates and we’ll send you a link when it’s ready.
