kicked off the new academic year with a continuation of last year’s slam poetry event, Slay on Words.
We gathered together at the Fossgate Social for an intimate evening hosted by last year’s winner Emily Pritchard.
The slam consisted of performances from eight different poets and a special performance from last year’s Slay on Words’ hostess, Samra.
The night culminated in a final performance from this term’s winner, Grace Carter, on the not-so-fine relationship between knitting and Tinder.
