Poetry Jam is the first Thursday of every month
Poetry Jam is an open mic night for your first poem or your fifty-first.
It’s a place where the topic can go from love, to comedy, to grief in a heartbeat.
It’s a place for free verse, for slam, for sonnets and for lyrics.
It’s raw, uncensored and sometimes explicit.
Everyone is welcome, whether you’re just here to drink in the culture, or you want to speak up and be heard.
Let us know you’ll be there and grab your free ticket.
PERFORMERS, POETS, SPOKEN WORD ARTISTS!!
We ask poets to send us prerecorded videos of their performance to us for a chance to feature in the showcase, with our young hosts reacting to the performances.
WHERE TO WATCH?
Join us on YouTube, at 7pm on the first Thursday of every month, to watch the event live. Follow and subscribe for more content at @beatfreeks across our social media platforms. Don’t worry, once you’ve registered here, we’ll send out a link when we are ready to go live, so no need to worry.
