The SFL 2020 Poetry Slam

https://www.shrewsburylitfest.co.uk/images/gallery/event-images-3/ppp4_thumb.jpg

If you’ve never been to a poetry slam, they can seem daunting. But here’s the secret: they’re really not. Yes, they’re competitions where poets go head to head and the audience (or judges) vote for a winner in each heat, but if you think of them as open-mic events with an added twist you won’t be far wrong. Slams vary slightly, depending who’s running them, but wherever you are, the night always ends up with one poet being crowned the ‘winner’. The important thing is, they’re a lot of fun.

Last year's winner, Colin Wells will be joining Jean Atkin at 10.30am in Poetry, Performance and Process.
