Poetry NI presents: The North Down Heat of the All Ulster Poetry Slam.
Bring your poems from page to stage and enter our live event, at which poets read
original work.

Just register at the start of the night if you want to enter. Names will be drawn out from the hat at random to read. You will have three minutes to compete in, and our judges will score who goes through to the next round. The outright winner will be crowned ‘Aspects Poetry Slam Champion’!

This is a first stage event in selecting Ulster’s top eight poets for the All Ireland Poetry Slam. The top two poets will join winners from other regional heats across the country in an All-Ulster final (Sat 7th October, 5.45pm – Enniskillen - Blakes of the Hollow)

• Any poet that goes over the three minute time limit will be eliminated
• No props
• No musical equipment
• All poems must be your own work
• All poems must be read on your own i.e. no duets / group pieces
• Any breaking of the rules leads to disqualification!

Good luck everyone!
