Calling all London poets: join the Paterson Poetry Slam at Curzon Soho
O, London poets: we want you! We are looking for London's finest poets to perform their work live at Curzon Soho, inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s latest feature film, Paterson.
On Friday 25 November on the opening night of Paterson, we will be having a special screening followed by a live poetry slam hosted by poet Niall O’Sullivan (who hosts London's premier open mic Poetry Unplugged at the Betsey Trotwood, and teaches Poetry and Performance at London Metropolitan University).
