Australian Poetry Slam Youth is the largest youth poetry slam in Sydney. Held annually by Word Travels, the program involves workshops and slams throughout Sydney, culminating in an explosive finale at Sydney Writers' Festival.

This year, Lost In Books is holding a multilingual heat for aspiring poets in the local area. Audience members vote for the top artists who will then go on to represent their suburb at the Australian Poetry Slam Youth - Sydney Final.

Bringing rap performances, stories, monologues and poems to the stage, each performer has just three minutes to wow the crowd. No props, no music – just the performer, a microphone and the spotlight.
