HARRY BAKER - WORLD CHAMPION SLAM POET !
PHILIP WILCOX - 2016 AUSTRALIAN SLAM CHAMPION !
MAGGIE K - EX-SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICAN !
In 2012 HARRY BAKER fought off all competition to represent his country at the World Cup of Poetry Slam in Paris, and after going head to head with 19 other national champions was crowned the youngest ever World Slam Champion, aged 20.
Since then, his career has gone from strength to strength.
Having been asked to share his work at a Local TEDx event in the UK, his performance was subsequently selected and shared on the mainTED.comwebsite and has now been viewed over a million times and translated into 15 different languages. After touring the UK and Europe extensively, as well as being invited out to North America and South Africa, 2016 will mark Harry’s first visit to New Zealand and Australia. Harry will be sharing poems and stories from his debut collection ‘The Sunshine Kid’ published with Burning Eye in December 2014, which also inspired a solo show of the same name, voted “Best Spoken Word Show” of the Edinburgh Fringe 2015.
PHILIP WILCOX is the current Australian Poetry Slam champion and a two time NSW Poetry Slam champion. He hosts and co-organises Three Poets Speak - a Sydney showcase of the finest spoken word artists from around Australia. Philip is a playwright, educator, styrofoam karate-chopper and an internationally touring poet. He just released his debut collection of poems Beetle Prayer.
MAGGIE K is an ex-soviet socialist republican who likes bread and having feelings about Pablo Neruda. Published as Margarita Tenser in journals such as Meniscus and Stone Telling, they have ambitions to write comics, an intense relationship with punctuation, and a pixie haircut, provided the pixie was dragged through a hedge backwards.
