Peace Slam (May 17)

Friday May 17, 8pm, Summerhall
As part of the Edinburgh Peace Initiative’s Peace Festival (, 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 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.
