Say Owt Slam
Poets are invited to perform no more than 3 minutes of material, and the audience vote for their favourite poet. It’s exciting, it’s raw ad it’s challenging and an exciting way to test your writing and performance, or to come as an audience member to see other poets reading their work. There’s cash prize too!
Say Owt Slam takes place at The Basement, York and has been praised as one of the most exciting spoken word nights not just in York, but across the UK.
Entry is £7, or free for slammers. For more information or a slot, email firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Facebook www.facebook.com/sayowtslam
