Swindon Slam 2011

SWINDON SLAM! – hosted with charm and good cheer by Marcus Moore and Sara-Jane Arbury, applauded, and enjoyed by YOU!

Welcome to the fifteenth Swindon Slam! – an opportunity for poets of any age, experience, or pedigree to take their gaze off the page and do it on stage; to share their verve and verse with a supportive and appreciative audience; to seize their moment to stanza and deliver!

This is what happens.....

Poets who want to have a go, apply to enter as soon as possible - contact the referee on 01285 640470 or email john.marcus.moore@gmail.com

On the night, competing poets are called up on stage to perform for three minutes each.

From then on, it’s a knockout!

Kindly judges, chosen from the kindly audience, decide who inspires and who expires..........but whatever their fate, all competitors can expect a rush of adrenalin, roars of applause, chunks of chocolate, and showers of flowers.

Everyone is a winner and gets a prize, even if it’s only a choccy haiku.

But only one poet becomes the fifteenth Swindon Slam! champion and carries off the bubbly-filled trophy.

Hosting proceedings, juggling judgements, crunching numbers, and presiding with wit, wisdom, and whistle, will be that Spiel-slick duo: master mischief-making MC Marcus Moore and svelte intro-writing mic madam Sara-Jane Arbury.

Tickets - £6 (£5)

Please call the Arts Centre Box Office to book tickets for this event or contact the Swindon Festival of Literature for any further information.
