Meet Solli Raphael

By Solli Raphael

Solli Raphael was crowned the Australian Slam Poetry Champion at the Sydney Opera House in 2017 in an all-adult competition at just 12 years of age, the youngest ever to earn the title. Since then, Solli has performed at events such as the Adelaide Fringe Festival, closing the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games and a TEDx Sydney Conference in June 2018.

At Brisbane Writers Festival this year, Solli will be joining us for a few events including the Marion Taylor Opening Night Gala as well as hosting a few Word Play sessions on Slam Poetry as part of our education program.
