Shoreham Wordfest Poetry and Short Story Slam

This year’s Slam will be hosted by author Tom Cutler, and judges will include Tess Jolly and Alistair Davies, who will pick names from a poetry or prose hat. The lucky writers
will be invited onto the stage to read their pieces. During the interval the judges will decide on the winner and runners up in each section. Winning entries will be published by Shoreham Wordfest after the event.

If you would like to enter, please submit a copy of your unpublished poem or story by Friday 29 September to, titled ‘Slam entry’. All entries will be read and at least half selected to go into the
poetry or short story hat. Pieces should last no more than five minutes when read aloud.
