This year's competition is being held in Hook & Ladder cafe on Sarsfield Street, Limerick City, from 6-8pm.
Also featured on the night is the launch of Solstice Sounds, a CD of poetry, spoken word, music and experimental sounds, as edited by Clara Rose Thornton
The National Poetry Slam Finals will come with an entry cost of 5 euro (that's less than one fancy pint of continental beer). However, thanks to a supporting grant from the Limerick Arts Office, we are delighted to offer every one who comes a complimentary CD.
Additional merchandise will be available on the night, all proceeds go back into the Slams, so we can do it again next year, so if you love poetry and you want to see more of it, please put aside two euro a week for the next three weeks and spend it on poetry.
You can do it. We believe in you. This is going to be a great night guaranteed for lovers of poetry, performance, pictorial word play and passionate writing.
See you there!
