Friday May 17, 8pm, Summerhall
As part of the Edinburgh Peace Initiative’s Peace Festival (www.epipeace.com
), Inky Fingers is running a peace-themed poetry slam.As we’ve only got a 30 minute time slot we’re looking for 8 slammers – and 2 reserves – to compete in one round of 90 seconds, with two going through to a 2 minute timed final. There will be prizes! And as it’s a peace-themed slam, competitors will be required to stick to the theme of ‘peace’; it’s your interpretation but you might be marked down for not sticking to the theme!We’re also looking for 3 judges. Want to pass judgement on your slamming peers? Then get involved!
So, we’ve got a much shorter-than-usual slam with shorter time slots. It should be high-octane stuff. Throw in the peace theme and it should be a slam not to be missed!
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you want to compete or judge. Please put ‘peace slam’ in the subject box thing. We’ll draw the 8 slammers and 3 judges out of a hat on the day before the slam and let the lucky ones know by email.
