Poetry Slam - Call for Poets

posted 16 Oct 2020

After being postponed earlier this year due to COVID-19, Roundhouse are delighted to announce that their Poetry Slam event will be going ahead, live streamed in front of an intimate audience from the Roundhouse. Could you be one of the finalists this year?

This year’s Slam final judges include writer and poet Anthony Anaxagorou, poet, editor and essayist Will Harris and Cultural Producer and writer Tobi Kyeremateng.

By taking part, you’ll get….

• The chance to showcase your talent in front of live and online audiences.
• The opportunity to make industry contacts, raise your profile and network with peers and professionals in the spoken word industry.
• Have the opportunity to compete for the title of Roundhouse Slam Champion and win a cash prize if you finish in the top three or win the audience vote.
• Finalists’ performances will be professionally filmed and uploaded to the Roundhouse YouTube Channel, which has over 16,000 subscribers. Past finalist videos have been reposted by global online publications and accumulated views in excess of 5 million.
• Cash prizes for the runners up

The Slam Heats will take place online via Zoom, with the hope of the final taking place live at the Roundhouse.


The application deadline is 26th October, midday.
