Our Poetry Open Mic Night has gone digital! Offering a bigger platform than ever before to young poets.

Whether you’re a regular on the online poetry scene or have never performed in front of an audience before, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your work, try something new, or just have fun.

No previous experience necessary! All you need is:

  • Access to the internet
  • A computer or smart phone
  • An account with Instagram or Facebook – follow us @BradfordlitFest

Taking part is easy! You can either:

  • Email your performance to us in advance at marketing@bradfordlitfest.co.uk and we’ll share it during the event. You’re welcome to remain anonymous! You don’t even have to show your face – perhaps you want to point the camera at the tree in the garden? Or just take a picture of your written poem? That’s fine too!
  • Post to Instagram or Facebook Stories during the event, tagging @BradfordLitFest with the hashtag #BLit and we’ll share your performance with our followers.

We’ll be online from 5.30 to 7pm – we hope to see you there!

This is a B-Lit event, supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
