The Last Conversation (2013)

20.00

This book is comprised of poems that were created to be 'perforned' to an audience. They were never really intended to be printed for people to read. It has been an interesting process taking these from one form to another.

Spoken Word or Slam Poetry sometimes is looked down upon by poets more in tune with the academic and literary world. But our collective belief is that poetry as a form is best performed. Through performance, the passion, the love, the anger and the very essence of the matter being addressed can be felt as well as heard by an active, engaged crowd of people who can take the words of a poet viscerally into their very being and their hearts. I have sat amongst the crowds at the Bankstown Poetry Slam where everyon is crying, where everyone is laughing, where everyone gently smiles and experiences every emotion in-between.

It is this quality which takes Poetry slams outside and beyond the written word into another zone altogether. These collective emotional experiences are sometimes rare for us nowadays and we celebrate these at the Bankstown Poetry Slam.
