Colliers Wood Turns Poetic

Prize for best local poet

A "Poetry Slam" takes place at Colliers Wood Library on Thursday (October 20), with a £25 cash prize for the best poet reading their own work.

The MC will be Russell Thompson who coordinates the Merton Poetry Group. Invitations have been sent to the Dodo Poets Society and the Apples and Snakes spoken word and poetry group. If you would like to take part, contact Chrysella, the library manager on 0208-274-5799.

Refreshments will be served to lubricate vocal chords during the event, which celebrates the recent National Poetry Day.

The Slam, which has been organised in partnership with the Friends of Donald Hope Library and "Making Colliers Wood Happy!", starts at 6.30pm.
