Young Poets Takeover

A poetry gig by and for young writers: this Young Poets Takeover will feature some of the most recent winners of the Foyle Young Poets of the Year Award. There will also be an open mic section for absolutely anyone aged 25 or younger to sign up and perform.

People who don't want to perform but are simply hoping to hear young talent or meet their poetry peers are also encouraged to come along.
The event will be hosted by The Poetry Society’s Education Co-ordinator Helen Bowell.
2 minute open mic slots will be available for people who arrive to sign up at 5pm. All styles of poetry are welcome, and writers at all stages in their development. It’s first come, first served and open mic slots are popular, so prompt arrival is recommended.
