Tegan Nicholls joins Word Travels on a quest across NSW, meeting young slam poets at the crossroads of race, access and recognition. From small country towns to beachside writer’s festivals, Tegan and the Word Travels crew road trip across the state recording stories, rehearsals and conversations all leading up to one big moment: the National Slam Finals at the Sydney Opera House. But this series isn’t about winners and losers, it’s about what it’s like to be a dream-big poet in small-town Australia. Word Travels Fast is supported by the NSW Government through Create NSW.
