Take part in our Open Mics or Slam this year!

Sunday 14 February 2021

We’ll have two Open Mic events next month plus our usual slam. The first Open Mic session will be in a break-out room at the opening night party, after the formal launch event on Saturday 6 March, starting at 8pm. Then on Friday 12 March at 9pm, our regular Risk a Verse Open Mic is in partnership with St Mungo’s Mirrorball. We look forward to hearing some of the Mirrorballers reading then, but there are plenty more open slots for anyone else who would like to read then. To sign up for a reading slot, just email stanza@stanzapoetry.org with either Opening Night Open Mic, or Friday Risk a Verse Open Mic in the subject line with your name and email address. And whether you want to read or just enjoy hearing the poems and chat, you can book a free ticket with the Zoom link at our online Box Office.

The StAnza Slam will be on Saturday at 9pm, and even though it will start a bit earlier than usual this year, as we’ll all be joining from home, we decided to take the chance to give it a sleepover theme. So, feel free to dress in a onesie or dressing gown, and to have a mug of cocoa if you like.

If you’d like to take part in the Slam, there are still some places left so email stanza@stanzapoetry.org with Slam in the subject line, and with your name, email address, and phone number. And again, whether you’d like to take part or just to be in the audience, you can book a ticket to get the Zoom link from our online Box Office.

And full information about the Festival Café on Zoom opening hours is available on our website at https://stanzapoetry.org/festival/events/festival-cafe-zoom.
