About this event

ON THE 4TH SATURDAY OF THE MONTH, SPEAK THE WORD RUNS AN OPEN MIC NIGHT

5-minute slots available. Come to read and come to listen.

Come and enjoy some wordplay with a friendly, inclusive and encouraging group. Whoever you are and whatever your relationship with poetry, we'd love you to join us. Feel free to join as audience, without reading.

Following on from an incredible series of poetry and spoken word workshops with Roundhouse Slam Poet Rakaya Fetuga, through The Caraf Centre, several of us enjoyed the community so much that we've decided to continue the sessions.

Event time: 6–8pm (GMT/UTC)

Duration: 2 hours

Accessibility: Captioning available, let us know if you have any other accessibility needs.

Queer & trans-affirming.

  • 1st Saturday of month: workshop
  • 2nd Saturday of month: peer review
  • 3rd Saturday of month: workshop
  • 4th Saturday of month: open mic

Organiser Speak the Word

Organiser of Speak the Word: online open mic night

Speak the Word is a free weekly online poetry group that PJ Samuels and nudi co-run. Other poets leading the collective include NJ Holt, Tanya Denhere and Tarrine Khanom. We have free-access writing and peer review workshops, and open mics.

We're welcoming, queer-led, and queer and trans-affirming.

The sessions are popular but low-key, relaxed, run as a safer space, close-captioned and working towards better accessibility. We’re also working to build capacity of poets willing to lead sessions, so speak up if that’s you!
