About this Event

Lemme Talk is an open mic night at Poetry Ireland, brought to you in partnership with Slam Sunday. Running on the first Monday of the month, Lemme Talk gives poets, performers and all kinds of wordsmiths a chance to share their work with a friendly audience. It’s a non-competitive open mic and each night also features at least one special guest.

Five-minute slots are available on the night and there’s a cover charge of €5 (available online and on the door) which includes tea, coffee and sweet treats.

We will have 10 free tickets available on the door from 6pm. These tickets are set aside for anyone who needs them. Just request a Talk Token. No questions asked - we trust you!

This month's featured guest is The Poet Geoff.

The Poet Geoff has served as Writer in Residence for Dublin City Council for the Dublin North West area for the past two years, working on the show When I Grow Up. Last year he had the honour of writing the 100 year commemorative poem celebrating the first Dáil in Ireland, titled ‘January 1919’. He was recently commissioned as part of the First Fortnight Festival to write his most recent piece ‘Gloke’ after working with The Traveling Community for 4 months. Geoff has also been commissioned by the Dublin’s Culture Connects project to write for the Local Heroes initiative and his poem A Letter To Leo was chosen as the flagship piece for the My Name Is campaign fighting against child homelessness in Ireland. Geoff been featured on RTÉ, TV3, Today Fm, 98 FM, FM104 and Newstalk and in The Sunday Business Post, The Times, The Irish Times and The New York Times.
