In 2020 the Manchester entry was the joint winner of Slam-o-Vision, so we had the honour of hosting the event in 2021. We think with the talented writers and performers in our city that there’s a really good chance one of you will win again!
Manchester UNESCO City of Literature is offering a prize of £50 to the poet who represents our city at Slam-o-Vision 2022. The selected poet will represent Manchester via a pre-recorded video at a live streamed event held in Nottingham in November 2022 (date tbc).
If you live, work or study in Manchester and are over 18 you are eligible to apply.
The deadline for entries is Midnight, Sunday 16th October 2022.
