Galway Arts Centre January Poetry Slam

GALWAY ARTS CENTRE’S
Slamtastic
TUESDAY 26th January 2010
7-8 pm, Galway Arts Centre

Kick-start your New Year! 2010 Poetry Slams start Tuesday 26th January at 7pm at Galway Arts Centre 47 Dominick St.

What’s a Poetry Slam? Its live poetry with attitude: performers have three minutes each to wow the audience with their own original poetic creation. All subjects, styles and struts welcome. If the muse doesn’t strike, come along and listen to the performers strut their poetic stuff & you may even be picked as one of our audience judges!
There are two more dates for your slam diary Feb 23rd and March 30th before the Grand slam in April as Part of the Cúirt International Festival of Literature.

Resident MC Pete Mullineaux sets the pace and the guest performer is Sandra Martin, winner of the November Slam. Admission is free and all are welcome ¾ thanks to everyone who has read/listened/adjudicated/MCd at the Slams last year and we look forward to seeing you all, and all newcomers, in 2010.
