Poetry Ireland presents Lemme Talk, an open mic night on the first Monday of every month.
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 each night also features at least one special guest.
Five-minute slots are available on the night. Sign up to read on the door as you enter, and MC Brian Gallagher will pull names out of a hat as the evening progresses. If you don't get to read, your name gets carried over to the next month.
There’s a cover charge of €5 (available online and on the door) which includes tea, coffee and sweet treats. We will have 10 free tickets available on the door from 6.30pm. These tickets are set aside for anyone who needs them. Just request a Talk Token. No questions asked - we trust you!
April's featured performer is Lizzy Byrne, a performance artist based in Dublin. She has performed her spoken word and music on stages across Ireland, including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul, Castlepalooza and Bare in the Woods. She will be performing a special set funded by the Cavan Arts Council as part of Poetry Day in May 2019. She is a featured poet in Outstraight's debut collection and her poem, 'Walking Into Doors', features on The Circle Sessions First Album. Her piece, entitled 'This Time', which she released independently, reached 500+ views over a 24 hour period. This year, she infuses the magic of spoken word with the magnetic force of music to create a spellbinding show guaranteed to leave your head buzzing and your heart thumping for more.
