A society open to any Leeds Beckett students interested in writing poetry and short form prose, with a monthly open mic where all members are welcome to perform.
We provide a supportive and safe space to develop writing and performance skills, and to socialise.
1st Thursday of the month – ‘SpeakEasy’ Open Mic
2nd Thursday – ‘Write Now!’ writer’s workshop with your peers
3rd Thursday – Quiz/Trip/social
4th Thursday – ‘Write Now!’ writer’s workshop with your peers
We will keep you informed about other spoken word events in Leeds and beyond.
We send a team to the national UniSlam Competition in Birmingham every year, which one of our poets won in 2022.
We aim to publish an anthology of members’ work.
