C.I. POETRY SLAM! QUALIFIER
The Jersey Festival of Words SLAM! is the Channel Islands qualifier for this year's UK SLAM! Championships, run by Farrago Poetry since 1994. In the past, it has been won at the beginnings of their careers by the likes of Harry Baker, Dizraeli, Hollie McNish & Rachael Nworoko. The UK SLAM! Championships are the qualifying events for the World Cup of SLAM! in Paris next year.
The event will feature twelve poets, with priority given to those who also take part in the preceding Art of Slam! Workshop with John Paul O'Neill, who will be hosting the SLAM! The top poet from each Channel Island will qualify for a place in the UK SLAM! Championship finals and the winner will have full Channel Islands’ poetry slam bragging rights for a whole year!
The event is open to the public to watch...just come along.
