In October 2014, me and Stu Freestone decided to put on a slam. The night was a huge success, with 15 amazing poets and Mark Grist as guest poet. The standard was exceptionally high, and the audience reaction was amazing.
So now Say Owt Slam returns 23rd Janurary. 15 poets will have 3 minutes each to wow the audience, with the best poet receiving £30 cash prize and bragging rights. The night will be a fun and frantic display of spoken word and performance poetry.
