Poetic Unity and Black Cultural Archives present The Poets Corner
The new home of South London’s ONLY weekly poetry event.
After a poetic summer The Poets Corner returns this Autumn for its weekly spot of creative word play. Poetic Unity brings together some of the UK’s best up and coming poets and spoken word artists.
In partnership with Poetic Unity, we are inviting poets and spoken word artists to flex their talent and knowledge. Black British History Poetry spoken word competition calls artists to draw inspiration from their own historical knowledge on Black British History and use word play to inspire audiences.
The three best poets will be chosen by judges each week to perform in the final on Wednesday 28 September. In the final each participant will be required to have at least one poem based on Black British History. The winner will perform at this year's prestigious BACK2BLACK Awards show to hundreds of people at the London BAFTA on Sunday 2 October 2016.
Weekly poetry night runs each and every Wednesday from 6.30pm. Show starts at 7.00pm – 9.00pm.
Black British History Poetrycompetition rounds will take place on 7, 14 and 21 September. Finals on 28 September. To enter please email: firstname.lastname@example.org with the title 'Competition'.
