In 2016 three poets held a meeting in a pub in Wolverhampton. They drank beer. They talked about poetry. They hatched plans. By the end of the evening, they’d decided that they should form a collective – Poets, Prattlers and Pandemonialists -and see where that led them. In 2017, it led them to their first full-length show at the Arena Theatre in Wolverhampton. They had a lot of fun. The audience did, too.
The PPP collective have a few simple aims:
- Convince the world that poetry is a bag of awesome wrapped up with a bow of wonder.
- Convince the world to write some poetry.
- Convince some of the word to stand up and read that poetry in front of an audience.
- Promote and encourage acts.
- Particularly ones from the Black Country.
- Provide platforms for people to watch and perform poetry.
- Have fun!
Fun is definitely what happens at the SFL Poetry Slam! Come along and watch 15 fantastic poets give amazing performances and help decide who wins the prize of a performace spot at Shrewsbury Festival of Literature 2022!
