THE GALWAY Arts Centre Poetry Slam kicks off again on Tuesday at 7pm at the centre on 47 Dominick Street.
The Slam, with MC Pete Mullineaux, will take place on the third Tuesday of every month with winners earning a place in the Cúirt Grand Slam next April.
Anyone can take part and newcomers are welcome. To participate you need one poem/piece that will take about three minutes to perform. Judges on the night will select their favourite and the winner will be invited to be a guest reader at the next slam as well as qualifying for the Cúirt Grand Slam. The winner’s poem will be published on the Galway Arts Centre website.
There will also be an interactive words game on the night with a Charlie Byrne’s Bookshop voucher up for grabs. Admission is free and wine will be provided. All are welcome.
