Well this is exciting! DorkyDad has been asked to compere the first ever BBC Poetry Slam at the Edinburgh Fringe. The list of poets taking part is AMAZING, and hopefully it’ll take slam poetry to an entirely new audience.
It’s going to take place over five evenings – with six poets taking part each night for the first four nights, and then a grand final on the last night featuring the winners. Full details are below – it would be fantastic to see a supportive audience along for this, so please feel free to share.
Slam Poetry at the BBC Venue, Potterrow
Saturday August 13th – Wednesday August 17th, 6.45-8pm
Compere: Young Dawkins
Wednesday 17th August: THE FINAL
I’ve tried to include links to other events that these poets are doing… if I’ve missed any please let me know.)
