Poetry NI presents The Belfast Book Festival Poetry Slam


Open to all poets, we invite you to take the mic and enter our annual poetry slam competition. Share your work in front of a lively and appreciative audience, with new readers always welcome. To enter, just register at the start of the night; names will be drawn out at random, with each poet invited onstage to read.

The winner will receive the Brain Bailey Memorial Cup, in tribute to the much missed poet and pioneer of the Belfast live poetry scene.

Available slots will be limited to 22 due to time constraints, so it’s first come, first served! For full rules of entry, please see Poetryni.com
