Tonight I entered a Poetry Slam at my University, and although I didn't win, it was a good experience.
Mostly because I normally get so nervous when doing these things, particularly in public.

I did come back richer by two bottles of wine, and although I don't drink, I am sure I can find some use for them.
The poems I read are the recent ones posted here, and my favourite by Michael Ondaatje- The Time Around Scars.

It was also nice to hear live poetry, which I was surprised to hear that it was mostly things people had written themselves.
I also cannot complain that it was nice and quiet in the union for once.

I hope they do more, and that in future there is a bigger and better turnout, particularly from the writing students!
