Ashlee Karlar

Ashlee Karlar is a spoken word poet, writer and social worker. A former competitor in the Australian poetry slam, a previous poet in residence and a regular feature performer at open mics across Adelaide, Ashlee’s poetry is a cocktail of satirical social commentary and self love odes. A tequila enthusiast, she is also known for her borderline obsessive love of cats.

Nico is a finger guns poet who kicks arse, self doubts, loves a beer and isn’t afraid to tell you when you’re acting like an arsehole. Won a shit ton of money in a huge slam but is just too good to be fucked anymore.
