THE GALWAY Arts Centre’s first Poetry Slam of 2012 takes place on Tuesday January 17 at 7pm in the centre on 47 Dominick Street.
Anyone can participate and newcomers are very welcome. To take part you need one poem/piece that will take about three minutes to perform. Judges 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 along with a biography of the contestant.
December slam winner Denis Mockler will be the guest reader on the night. Admission is free and wine will be provided.
