THERE ARE many slam events for poets, but fiction writers never get the same look it. To rectify this, the ninth Over The Edge annual fiction slam returns to The Kitchen at the Galway City Museum next week.
The first 12 fiction writers into The Kitchen on Friday October 13 ahead of the event's start time of 8pm, and to register, will be guaranteed a place in the slam. Participating writers should bring two pieces of their own fiction, as there are two rounds. Time limit in both rounds is five minutes. Extracts from longer stories are admissible. Stories do not have to be memorised.
The slam will be judged by a three person jury of two audience members and author Karl Parkinson, who will also read from his debut novel, The Blocks (New Binary Press ). Admission is free. For more information contact 087 - 6431748.
