Poetry NI proudly presents the
Belfast Book Festival
Saturday 6th June, 9pm,
Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast
Book tickets via festival website.
Open to all poets, we invite you to take the mic and enter our annual poetry slam competition. Share your work in front of a lively and appreciative audience, with new readers always welcome.
This year, the winner will receive the Brian Bailey Memorial Cup, in tribute to the much missed poet and pioneer of the Belfast live poetry scene.
WHAT IS A SLAM?
If you're not too sure how a slam works, or how it differs from our usual open mic nights, don't panic! We're written a handy little guide for you: www.poetryni.com/slam-rules
This is our eighth slam at the festival (we think, there's been so many, we've lost count), so if you haven't experienced the craic of a slam before, get along and check it out!
(Please note: as June is Book Festival season, our regular Purely Poetry
open mic is not on in the first Friday in June. It will be back in July.)
