Event description

Description

Redditch Astronomical Society presents: An Astrophysical Poetry Slam with support from the Royal Astronomical Society.

Hosted by @SpozPoet, up to 15 poets are invited to perform their Space themed poems in competition to be crowned Star for the night and receive a prize.

If you are fascinated by the The Sky at Night @BBCStargazing or inspired by Dr Sam Illingworth's 'Use poetry to share your science', why not try your hand at Poetic #scicomm.

We are looking for upto 15 poets to put their names forward (poetry@redditchastro.org.uk) to take 5 minutes to enthrall our audience of astronomers and poetry lovers with a poetic work about Space, Astronomy and the Universe. The best six, as chosen by our audience can then compete to take home a £50 prize.

Spoz, Birmingham’s 2006 Poet Laureate and ceaseless promoter of written and performed poetry, is sure to sprinkle stardust on the proceedings as we share our love of astronomy through poetry. Contact poetry@redditchastro.org.uk for an entry form and your free Poet's Pass.
