The [anti] Valentines Anti-Slam

  • Hackney Attic Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street London, E8 1HE UK (map)

The Anti-Slam is back! The poetry competition where the poet with the lowest score wins.

Valentine’s Day is traditionally a time for heartfelt sentiment and loving feelings – best expressed through beautiful poetry. The Anti-Slam turns that on its head for an Anti-Valentine’s Day slam!

In a normal poetry slam competition, the highest scoring poet wins. At The Anti-Slam, the worst poet wins! We’ve challenged London’s top poets to be hilariously terrible. Laugh-out-loud embarrassing. Entertainingly cringe worthy. Poetry so bad it transcends quality, becoming genius – all given an Anti-Valentine’s twist.
