The Belfast Book Festival is almost upon us, and once again, Poetry NI is presenting the annual Book Festival Poetry Slam.
This year, in addition to being crowned Slam Champion and receiving the inaugural Brain Bailey Memorial Cup, we are delighted to announced that Poetry NI will also consider a pamphlet-length manuscript by the winning poet to be released by our publishing wing, Pen Points Press. So that's just one more reason to book your ticket and enter!
In additional, many thanks to everyone who attended our workshop and showcase reading for the NI Mental Health Arts and Film Festival. Poet Peter Adair, who read at the event, has done a recap of the readings for Lagan Online.
