Amman Poetry Slam (November Edition) Featuring Sara Saleh
The Amman Poetry Slam is the first ever regular poetry slam in Amman! It is an extention of Delilah's Corner, Delilah's vision for a literary culture and audience. Delilah is the founder of the Amman Writing Club, whose members will be performing at the slam.
The Amman Poetry Slam gives local talent the opportunity to showcase thier Spoken Word Poetry. It is an open mic event that promotes the creation and performance of poetry and provides a place for voices to be appreciated beyond thier cultural, social, political, or economic boarders. The purpose of the slam is to engage the community and allow for its voices to be heard through the power of voice.
"We bring together writers from various forms and backgrounds, including the best contemporary novelists, screenwriters, musicians and writers of cutting-edge nonfiction, and some of the world's leading public intellectuals, scientists and journalists. With the finest writing and storytelling at its core, our programming is driven by the ideas and issues that animate all types of literature."
Here's how it works:
On the evening of the event, participants who wish to perform put their names down on a sign-up sheet. These participants have 3 minutes to perform their own original work.
On the night, we also showcase local musical talent at the ending of each half, and have a “feature act” in which a seasoned poet performs a set of poetry.
Any proceeds or donations we receive on the night are funnelled back into the slam to pay for the lighting and sound technician and the costs of sponsoring feature poets to perform.
It is hosted at the mentioned venue on the last Monday of every month!
Speakers should attend 15-30 minutes early to sign up. Ticket are 4 JDs each to be paid at the door. The venue is to be confirmed.
