Enough Said Poetry Slam Wollongong has learnt to overcome and adapt to the challenges brought by COVID-19.
The popular poetry showcase is back after a forced pandemic hiatus, its first return monthly workshop set down for tomorrow night.
The group gained popularity over its early years but attendance dropped when it was forced to go online due to the pandemic last year.
The group’s monthly slams were cancelled because volunteer numbers have dropped and COVID restrictions put too much pressure on events.
Organising team member and Enough Said host Adara Enthaler said the team was sad about making the decision because they believe Enough Said is a platform for all voices to be heard.
“There’s not a prerequisite. You don’t have to apply or meet a certain style of poetry. You don’t have to have performed. You just get up and do it,” Ms Enthaler said.
Ms Enthaler said the Enough Said poetry topics range from love to raising awareness about societal issues.
She said the slams attract a variety of genders under the age of 30 but Enough Said was open to all ages.
