Young Poets Takeover 21 August 2018

Tuesday 21 August 2018, 2:30 pm5:00 pm


Following the success of our first Young Poets Takeover in June, we’re delighted to announce a second. Join us in The Poetry Café for a reading bringing together Foyle Young Poets, Young Poets Network challenge winners and SLAMbassadors champions of all ages, hosted by former Foyle Young Poet and current Education Co-ordinator at The Poetry Society, Helen Bowell.

This time our magnificent readers will be: Lucy Tiller, Nadia Lines, Meredith LeMaître, Foyre Jalloh, Cia Mangat, Damayanti Chatterjee and Judith Howe.

Come along for an excellent afternoon of readings by the rising stars in poetry today. If you’re a young poet aged 11-25 who’d like to perform alongside our readers, bring a poem for the open mic section (2 mins per person). We welcome all styles of poetry, and writers at all stages in their development.

Arrive 2.30pm for tea and chat. Sign up for open mic from 2.30pm. Readings start at 3pm.
