I have written poetry most of my life, but it was mostly just for my own benefit; just to get it all out of my head. It wasn’t until 2019 that I discovered a venue that I could share my work in public. My first experience of performance poetry was at Enough Said Poetry Slam, Society One in Wollongong on September 26th, 2019 where I shared my piece The Darkness Within. (watch at my YouTube channel )
Since that first slam, I have been working towards holding a poetry Slam here in the Southern Highlands under the umbrella of the Melting Pot Theatre.
