Illuminations – Open Mic Poetry Special

Thu. 2 May 8pm
Free Admission

Join us soon at The Model for a night of poetry and conversation – everyone’s welcome, and admission is free! There’s an informal atmosphere and no need to sign up to read beforehand, you can just make your way there and enjoy yourself, read your own work or a favourite poem by a famous author.

Named in honour of the suite of poems by Arthur Rimbaud, Illuminations – Open Mic Poetry is a free, monthly event celebrating poetry and the spoken word. This event is open to readers, writers and performers of poetry, prose, fiction, non-fiction, music, performance art and esoterica. Illuminations is presented in collaboration with Bookmart, Sligo.

To mark the launch of the European Parliament's election awareness campaign for the Midlands-North-West Constituency, on 2nd May, there will be a European Elections Special of the monthly 'Illuminations' poetry evening at The Model, Sligo.

The evening will see a mixture of readings by international poets Alice Lyons, Sean Borodale and Viviana Fiorentino, Susan O'Keeffe Director of the Yeats Society, and open mic contributions.

Entrance is free and refreshments will be served.
