Take part in a poetry slam without leaving home

microphonePangaea Poetry, an international poetry organisation, are looking for poets from across the world to take part in their 3rd annual poetry slam in July.
The competition, supported by Arts Council England, was created to celebrate poetry and encourage artists to share their work from all corners of the globe.
Across the month of July anyone looking to take part can upload a video to YouTube and submit it online to the slam for four weekly rounds.
The quality of your video doesn’t matter, all that matters are your words and they don’t even have to be in English. You are welcome to submit in any language you like, and if you would like a transcript in English, Pangaea can provide this.

At the end of the month, five poets will receive £300 and support from Pangaea to look at how they can take their poetry forward.
There are two themes for this year’s slam:
The World Is Watching
Tell Us Your Story
Pangaea Poetry stress it’s an opportunity to tell the stories that you don’t get to shout about. Talk about what is happening in your world and discover tales from across the globe, all without leaving the house.
Submissions can be made at or you can contact for more information.
