The Spork! Poetry Slam

The Spork! Poetry Slam is back.

10 poets will battle it out to become the new Spork! Slam Champion, with a £50 cash prize up for grabs (& a coveted Spork! Mug.) Plus a special headline set from the incredible Sam J Grudgings.


The rules are simple: across 3 rounds of fierce but friendly competition, poets will woo and wow the audience with their words. Poems cannot exceed more than 3 minutes in length, and poets must prepare a total of 3 poems each. The winner will be decided by audience vote.

Fancy giving it a go? The Slam is open to everyone regardless of age or experience. For more info & to enter, email Chris at Priority places for first-time Slammers


Sam J Grudgings is a queer Bristol-based artist and poet shortlisted for the Outspoken Poetry Prize 2020. His work explores rehabilitation, addiction & loss via the lens of horror. Commonly found yelling poems at punk shows, his new collection The Bible II is available from Verve Poetry Press.

Spork! is an Exeter organisation making fun, engaging and accessible poetry & spoken-word. Hosted by Spork! maestro & multiple slam winner, Chris White
