Spork! presents a spoken-word poetry special at Exeter Phoenix on Sunday 29 October featuring poet Rick Dove plus a Dead Poets Slam.
In 2021 he won the Hammer & Tongue UK Poetry Slam at the Royal Albert Hall.
The Dead Poets Slam will see six famous poets rise from the dead for one night, brought to life by contemporary artists.
They will battle it out for a chance to win everlasting life, plus a £100 cash prize.
Spork! is a community-led producer of spoken word works. It was founded in 2018 by Exeter poet and artist Chris White.
It holds regular events in Exeter venues that feature local talent with line-ups from across the UK and offers a year-round programme of writing and performance workshops and an artist development programme.
Spork! works with a range of community partners from Newcourt Community Centre to Mothers Who Make.
It has programmed drag queens, brass bands and rappers as well as some of the best spoken-word artists in the UK and beyond, including Buddy Wakefield, Vanessa Kissule and John Hegley.
Spork! Dead Poets Slam is at 7.30pm on Sunday 29 October at Exeter Phoenix.
