The Sofa Slam
The Sofa Slam is Barking & Dagenham's first ever poetry slam. Hosted at The White House in Dagenham, The Sofa Slam follows slam tradition; bringing poetry to the people, into the home.
Come along on Saturday November 24th at 7pm to enjoy an evening of outstanding free poetry, or sign up to win a prize in the slam.
The November Sofa Slam will be accompanied by a workshop, 4-6pm, on poetry comics. What happens when we combine comicbooks with poetry? Can poetry be something we look at? Can drawings be something we read? Explore these questions and make some visual poetry of your own in this free workshop.
Email theSofaSlam@outlook.com to sign up for the workshop, open mic, or slam
