Expect to be wowed with breathtaking spoken word poetry by Easterine Kire and an intimate gathering with performances by urban slam poets, rap artists and indie musicians.
Easterine Kire is a poet and novelist based in Norway, where she concentrates on her writing, and performs jazz poetry with her band, Jazzpoesi.
Easterine has written several books in English including three collections of poetry and short stories. Her first novel, A Naga Village Remembered, was the first-ever Naga novel to be published. She has translated 200 oral poems from her native language, Tenyidie, into English. Her forthcoming books include Forest Song; a volume of spirit stories; and Bitter Wormwood, a novel on the Indo-Naga conflict. Easterine is founder and partner in a publishing house, Barkweaver, which gathers and publishes Naga folktales.
The November Poetry Party will be hosted by performance poet and writer, Kay Sang. Our venue partner is Korean Cultural Centre.

Watch the aftermovie of our last show:
If you're a rising slam poet:
The top three slam poets will have their poetry featured on the Delhi Poetry Slam website and online media partners.
Here are the rules:
1. Perform a work of poetry no longer than 3 minutes in length.
2. You should have the lines of your poem memorised. Poems who read out of paper or electronic devices will be disqualified from the slam.
3. The work you perform should be original. You may choose to collaborate with another artist and combine theatre, music, dance or hip hop in your performance.
4. Props, costumes and musical accompaniments are allowed in the performance.
5. Due to the multiculturalism of the audience at Delhi Poetry Slam, poets are required to perform primarily be in English. You may use certain lingos derived from another language in your poetry.
6. No previous performance poetry or theatrical experience is required. We suggest you to watch lots of youtube videos by incredible slam poets such as Staceyann Chin, Andrea Gibson, Saul Williams and Suli Breaks to finesse your art.
If you’re a writer or poet:
Bring your anthology or prints of your works to share with the crowd. We will invite you to the stage to talk about yourself and the background of your poetry. Your pitch has to be less than 1 minute 30 seconds. Alternatively, you are also free to exchange the copies with poets after the show.
Mark your calendars, Delhi. We will see you at the November Poetry Gala!
