last night jen and i went along to the uk slam poetry final run by farrago in london. a slam is a type of event rather than a style of poetry where each contestant gets to perform for 3 minutes. judges then give scores and contestants then go through to the next round and then get another 3 minutes slot. last night's contestants were made up of people who took part in an open mic early on in the evening and then winners of previous slams (london, south of england etc.) and there were contestants from scotland and wales. anyway the BIG NEWS if you didn't see it on my twitter or facebook is that our very own harry baker won so is the UK poetry slam champion 2011!!
