Synopsis

THE FROST IS COMING IN, BUT POETRY IS STILL WARMING OUR HEARTS AT THE GENESIS POETRY SLAM!

November 11th is the next addition for our wonderful Genesis poetry slam, and wow have we come back with an absolute BANG! It might be rolling into the full effects of winter- with the days getting shorter and the cold coming in, but we’ve got all your poetry needs covered to combat the chill! Last month we had the pleasure of Dan Simspon hosting us, a SOLD-OUT SHOW, and an absolute poetry party was had thanks to all our incredible slammers!

Our slam is still the friendliest and freest in all of London, and we want to keep making incredibly beautiful noise with our words and Genesis Poetry Slam is the platform we want to do it on!

You know what to do- No features. *Just slam*!

Grab a cocktail, a pieminister pie and a comfy sofa and watch poets battle it out for a chance to compete at the Hammer and Tongue poetry slam nationals Royal Albert hall in 2023!

To ensure equal representation please indicate where you fall on the gender spectrum when you sign up. To sign up to slam simply comment on the Facebook event page or email poetry@genesis-cinema.co.uk

We have 4 female, 4 male and 4 non binary slots available for all you wonderful poets out there for the PRE SIGN UP. These spaces fill quickly, and we try to be as fair to everyone who wants to sign up.

We will be reserving 2 female, 2 male and 2 non binary slots ON THE NIGHT, to combine the pre sign up and those who want to try their luck on the night. Always looking for new ways to make it fair and accessible for people!

Tickets are FREE but must be booked in advance. Last month we were SOLD OUT so grab yours quickly!

Make sure you grab your tickets as early as possible and if you can't make it please contact Genesis to release your ticket. If you join the Genesis website for free, there’s no ticket charge so it’s all completely free!

POETS:

The slam is a 3 round slam, please bring 3 poems just in case, all 3 minutes each or under. Slots are really popular so please arrive by 7.15pm to keep your slot, or we will allocate it to the next person on the reserve list (this also goes for anyone wanting to sign up on one of our slots available on the night- there are only 6 in total and they will go fast!) If you haven’t arrived by the time the slam has started and made yourself known to us that you are present, you won’t be able to perform! We like to keep things fair at Genesis, and since our poets are given a random order before the start of the show, if you want to participate you have to be there before we start.

No props, no costumes (reading your poem from a paper or phone is fine!) and no hate. Other than that the only thing to remember is that the points are not the point....

IT'S THE POETRY!

The poetry and the people always

Doors at 6:30pm for a 7:30pm start :)
