Spoken Word Slam Competition Night:

From the Horse’s Mouth @ Summerhall’s Royal Dick pub

Quiet Slam 13 February 2019

Our annual competitive slam for 10 poets/writers/slammers

Hosted by previous featured writer Iona Lee (herself a national Poetry Slam Champion)

With a prize for the winner offered by our partners at the Royal Dick pub

You will need to bring four poems (written by you — no translations; either published or unpublished is fine); either read off book/phone or memorised;

We’re looking for just one poem per round

(so no 'eight haikus' unless they combine into a single poem; preambles start the clock and count towards your time, but asking for help with the microphone does not) 1 no longer than 2 minutes (round 1) — you would definitely read this

1 no longer than 2.5 minutes (round 2) — you would definitely read this

2 no longer than 3 minutes — you would read one of these if you advance to the final round 3,

and a final one, because if you are the winner of the slam, you get to read a Winner's Poem

We will have a small judging panel of three, led by poet, critic and Chapman editor Joy Hendry, with Iona Lee our prize winning poet, artist and host for the evening and a member of the Horse’s Mouth stable of featured artists

To enter the slam

please email your name to Jacqueline Whymark on [email protected] before the end of January 2019 and we will draw names from a literal hat, to find our 10 competitors
