Say Owt presents: The Anti-Slam (worst poet wins!)


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This April Fool's Day come celebrate York's 3rd Say Owt Anti-Slam!

In a normal poetry slam, the best poet wins. Poets use their wit and words to wow the audience.
However in an Anti-Slam, the worst poet wins. We don't just mean standard half-hearted boring poetry.
We mean the soppiest, slushiest love poetry that would make your date vomit
We mean radical revolutionary poetry that would make you want to get a job as a banker
Cringe at poems crammed with silly stanzas, pathetic puns and idiotic imagery and mournful metaphors (and atrocious alliteration).
Poetry that transcends quality, becoming genius!
It's totally unique and totally guaranteed to make you howl with laughter.
Poets from Manchester, Peterborough, Durham, Hull and, of course, York, will be competing for the title of Anti-Hero Slam Champ!
Come cheer (boo?) on the winner (loser?)
