Saint Lucia poetry lovers, Thursday night is your night! This very evening TWO poetry events are vying for our attention – it’s the Grand Slam of Poetry in St. Lucia tonight!
Each and every Thursday, K’s Lounge on Jeremie Street Castries plays host to Pomn Damou Kreations‘ Poetry Slam. The slam is free to patrons while poets pay $5 to enter, and everything gets going at 8 p.m.
And at 7:30 pm on the last Thursday of (mostly) every month, Headphunk hosts its monthly Open Mic Poetry night. This month’s event is titled Headphunk – Untamed, and this time the mic is closed – it’s a competition for the best interpretation of “Independence”. Up for grabs is a Galaxy Tab, so you know the competition will be fierce. Headphunk Untamed takes place on the side lawn of Samaans Park, Choc. Unfortunately entries are already closed, but there will be much entertainment to be had in supporting great Saint Lucian poetry. Island Scene 758 will see y’all there!
