About the Event

Myriam San Marco and the Wordmakers bring The Anti Slam to the Black Cherry this September!

You  know what a slam is: the poet with the best poem and highest score wins. But what if the format of the slam was turned on its head? What if the point wasn’t performing the best piece – but the worst? Wordmakers challenged some of the UK’s best poets to do just this.

We don’t just mean bad: we mean hilariously terrible. Laugh-out-loud embarrassing. Entertainingly cringe worthy. Poetry so bad it transcends quality and becomes genius.

The Anti-Slam: where the poet with the lowest score wins!

With poets this good, being this bad, it’s going to be awesome.

To apply to enter, please email wordmakersandsilencebreakers@gmail.com asap, final deadline is the 31st of August 22.

Anti Slammers: Places limited to 8. Free entry to the event. £50 to the winner and the title of The Worst Poet In the UK on the 23rd of September 2022. Wordmakers will offer paid support slots to all finalists. Email for application.
