Write Around the Murray - Poetry Slam workshop

3 Aug, 2022

Poetry is everywhere! In the jolt of a pothole, a river’s babble and the pixelated face of a lover.  

Do you want to speak your mind in front of a live audience? Have you got something to say?  

Find it, write it, speak it. Learn to wow the crowd with your words.  

Facilitated by Huda the Goddess, this exciting workshop will help you find inspiration all around you and hone in on your stories. Write a revolution! Then, bring the fire at your local Albury-Wodonga poetry slam heat. 

Australian Poetry Slam pops up at stages everywhere. From July to October, APS heats and workshops connect storytellers across the nation, leading to the National Final as part of Story Week 2022. 

Are you the next Australian Poetry Slam Champion? 

Huda the Goddess is the current Australian Poetry Slam Champion and two-time Queensland champ. Huda is a spoken word poet, educator, mental health advocate, dancer and workshop facilitator. She describes poetry as one of her senses that allows her to turn her experiences into art and is currently working on her first poetry collection. As a proud African-Muslim woman, it is important to her that young women from her community are represented and their stories are shared. Poetry is her connection to communities, land and her people. Having the chance to make people feel something will always be her goal as an artist.
