EDINBURGH: The Dead Poets Slam

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012, 8pm-11pm, £5/£4
City Cafe,
19 Blair Street,

Inky Fingers is delighted to present a chance to honour, commune with, and possibly posthumously horrify your favourite poets in our DEAD POETS SLAM. Come and see your very own local performance poets transformed into their heroes! Enjoy some classic poetry as you've never seen it before! You might even discover a new favourite. It promises to be diverse, entertaining, and probably quite weird.

The competition is open to everyone. Slammers must compete as their chosen dead poets, in three rounds - props, costumes and theatrics are encouraged. There will be prizes. If you'd like to take part, email Get in there quickly to claim your poets, as it's first come first served, and we won't be allowing any doubles!

Inky Fingers is a series of events in Edinburgh for people who love words. We care about supporting and encouraging writers and spoken word performers, creative experimentation, building communities of writers working together to create, and putting on fantastic events that celebrate language.
