SHoS A5 FRONT 2015  1

The excitement is now building  and attracting huge interest from across the region, for the Superheroes of Slam Poetry Midlands Heat, organized in association with Dare to Diva company for the very first time in the Midlands region.  We want very much to encourage Women BME  LGBT and Older participants for the Slam who are often under represented.   Its great news that the ebullient Spoken Word Artist Rob Gee, a well known Poetry Slam Champion himself, is confirmed as the Compere for the evening. So this event is  not to be missed Slam Event will be held at the Sept 17th 2015  Attenborough Centre Lancaster Road Leicester.

This very brilliant  national Slam Poetry Event, with its iconic imagery on the publicity material and fabulous cash prize, an opportunity for the finalist to compete in the final in Manchester courtesy of Common Word, with a chance for a bigger cash prize and Arvon course .  Importantly the competition raises awareness and  offers the Dike Omeje Award, which is  named after an important and successful Poetry Slam champion,  who was based in the Manchester area, who sadly passed away, however his outstanding legacy is continued with this competition.

Registration of  Superheroes Slam participants continues a pace and later this month we will find out who is the Superheroes of Slam of theMidlands region
