SlamSoc is the University of York’s official performance poetry society. Dedicated to writing, performing and appreciating spoken word poetry, we meet biweekly.
Whether you’re on the third draft of your debut pamphlet, you’ve watched one viral Button Poetry video or you’re halfway through writing your first poem SlamSoc is the place for you.
Hold onto your hats, for a year of Open Mics, competitive Slams both within the society and inter-university, writing workshops, performance workshops and special guests (inc. some poetry legends)
Come meet like-minded people who like words!
For the foreseeable future Slamsoc meetings will take place online via Zoom. The link will be sent to all members of the society. We hope to meet in person soon.
Sessions will be held from 6:30pm- 8:30pm every other Tuesday
The society is open to everyone, whether you want to write, listen or just be around poetry. Due to Covid-19 related delays, our Annual General Meeting and Elections will be held in Week 2 of the Autumn Term on the 27th October so there will be an opportunity to be part of our exciting new committee.
