This dynamic, competitive event pits poet against poet. They are working against the clock and their peers, to showcase their original work.

Poets register at the start of the night, will be chosen at random and have three minutes to perform. Three judges will score the work and choose who goes through to the next round. The outright winner will be crowned ‘Aspects Poetry Slam Champion!’ The winner and runner-up of the Aspects Poetry Slam will go forward to The Ulster Poetry Slam Final in Derry~Londonderry in early November.

Rules of the Slam:

  1. Poems should not exceed three minutes
  2. Pieces should be the poet’s own work
  3. No props*, musical instruments
  4. Poets should perform solo
  5. There will be penalties/disqualification for non-adherence to the rules
  6. Timing begins after the poet gives their name and title of the poem

*Page/book to read poem from is acceptable

Good luck to all.
