On Wednesday 20th October, as part of Oxfam's national OXJAM festival, four poets from Cardiff will battle it out against four poets from Swansea at Koko Gorillaz in Cathays, Cardiff. The two rounds of the slam will give each poet 10 minutes in total to impress the judges with their words, rhymes and rhythms, under the watchful eyes of compères Nick Fisk and Gemma June Howell.
Poets representing Cardiff:
Mab Jones, Liam Johnson, Sue Hamblen, Jack Pascoe
Poets representing Swansea:
Simone Mansell-Broome, Liza Penn-Thomas, Adam Sillman and myself
