It's the season finale of Edinburgh's only quickfire, new material poetry slam! Come join us for another night of exciting fresh voices and new work from old favourites.
Want to compete? Put your name in our hat by emailing [email protected]
and we'll do a draw the week before the event. All slammers get free entry. The rules, as always, are:
One Round (one poem)
New Material Only
Doors at 18:30 for a 19:00 start. Be early to avoid disappointment.
£4 entry, and donation wine bar (please note, we can no longer do BYOB, apologies).
PLUS FEATURE SETS FROM ARTISTS SO BRAIN STRETCHINGLY AWESOME THAT YOU'LL EMERGE FROM THE SHOW FLUENT IN SIX NEW LANGUAGES
ENTERING THE SLAM? PLEASE READ:
No props or musical backing allowed. We will be on hiatus over August and September, but the winner will get a paid feature in our October show.
You are absolutely allowed to read from paper if you want.
If demand for slots is high, we will prioritise people who did NOT perform in last month's slam. If your name is not drawn for this upcoming slam, then your name will go in the hat twice next time you sign up, then three times, then four e.t.c. PLEASE NOTE, you MUST send us a new email every time you sign up. If you're not drawn, we don't just automatically put you in next month's draw; for all we know you might be busy that night :-).
The God Damn Debut Slam is a safe, inclusive space and has a zero tolerance policy on abuse. Any allegations will be taken seriously, alleged victims will be believed and supported to the best of our ability.
