Get yourself heard on Monday nights.
Lemme Talk is an open mic night at Poetry Ireland, brought to you in partnership with Slam Sunday. Running on the first Monday of the month, Lemme Talk gives poets, performers and all kinds of wordsmiths a chance to share their work with a friendly audience. It’s a non-competitive open mic and features a performance from at least one special guest.
While Lemme Talk typically takes place in Parnell Square, it is currently taking place digitally through the Poetry Ireland Instagram page. We encourage you to upload a video of yourself reading a poem of your own to your Instagram anytime throughout the month. Be sure to use the hashtag #LemmeTalkIRL and tag @poetryireland so we can spot your poem.
On the first Monday of every month, we'll be sharing a selection of your videos to our Instagram story. We'll also be posting a performance from the monthly featured poet.
