Overview

Born Lippy presents…

The Geet Muckle Slam

 

Translation

Geet –  great or very (Tyneside)

Muckle – very large (Northern English/Scottish)

Slam – poetry competition where the audience is the judge

 

Twelve poets go head to head in a friendly war of words. There can only be one winner to become the ultimate Geet Muckle Slam Champion- You decide…

Slam poetry is poetry of the 21st century – combining the finest writing, high energy performances, competition, and audience participation. You are given the power to praise or, sometimes, destroy a poem. So listen, watch, and use your power wisely.

Born Lippy is the North East’s leading event platform for all things wordy. They showcase the best in national, international and local live poetry & spoken word talent in regular wordplay cabaret performances and workshops. They have programmed poetry stages at Lindisfarne, Words Weekender, Summer Streets and Newcastle Poetry Festivals.
