Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to join forces with The Northern, Manchester’s original modern pub in the heart of the Northern Quarter, to launch a regular poetry night for northern slammers. The first slam is hosted by the effervescent comedian John Cooper and features a special guest appearance from Max Seymour, winner of last year’s Manchester Literature Festival Comedy Slam. Come and discover the city’s rising stars of poetry and comedy and help crown a champion.
Each contestant gets 3 minutes on the mic to impress the audience. The winner of each heat receives a small cash prize, a guest spot in next month’s heat and automatic entry into the Manchester Literature Festival Grand Slam in October.
