Poetry and Spoken Word

Applications close on at 23:55 on 31st March 2019 – filling in the application form does take a little while so please don’t leave it until the last minute – we are unable to make exceptions or reopen the application form if you don’t complete it before the deadline. 

Thank you for your interest to perform with us at Phantom Laundry – the home of all things poetic and spoken wondrous at Shambala! We showcase all kinds of poetry and spoken word on our stage, alongside a sweet selection of live music.

We would like to note that we particularly welcome and encourage submissions from artists who are women, trans*, BAME, or consider themselves to have a disability. We want to curate a program which is as diverse and richly representative of the whole scene as possible!

You can send us poems in text format if you want, but what we’d really love is to see videos of you reading / performing your work, so we can see how you do what you do! It doesn’t matter about video quality, we just wanna see and hear how you perform.

Applications close on 31st March 2019.
