I must confess this is an email to all the poets I know in the Leinster area.
Reason being there is a chance for you to have some fun and make some money for your words!
This bank holiday Monday 25th of October I will be running the Leinster heat for the All Ireland Slam Final 2010.
It will take place upstairs in The International Bar, 23 Wicklow Street, Dublin 2.
I need to have an idea of the amount poets wishing to recite, hence the email.... so if you are interested please reply to this email.
The plan is I need all poets there for 4pm that wish to 'compete' and the show will start at 5pm sharp! it will be over at around 8pm.
There is an entry fee of €5, now to make it clear this is purely for costs and to pay the winner of the slam.
€70 for 1st place and €30 for 2nd, then in the All Ireland Final a potential €200 for 1st place! (dependent on what we collect, but I expect this to be realistic)
I stand to make nothing.
After that any monies left will go to the Jack and Jill foundation: http://www.
jackandjill.ie/ I would hope to have a few bob to give them after all this.
So you can support 'the arts' and a charity all while having a good time, with fellow poets.
Ok so what else do you need to know....
The Slam Rules...
Here are the poets representing the other provinces that already qualified for the final:
Also if you write a blog, or have any media connections you might pass the word on to them too please!
Any questions just ask....
Be good now!SJS
