Calum Bannerman wins the inaugural Stowed Out Poetry Slam 2015

Calum Bannerman was a clear winner today in what is perhaps the first competitive spoken word slam in the Scottish Borders. He wowed with poems on his addiction to his girlfriend, a sweet and violent revenge and why we should write poems about him. A no paper performer - p&g is very much looking forward to his set at the Stowed Out Festival . He will be joining Harry Giles, Colin Will, Rab Wilson, Sara Clark, Bridget Khursheed, Dorothy Alexander and Thomas Clark on the Roxxap Roar Stage on the 29th August along with runners up Stuart Jones (with his memorable poem The Kidnapping of Gary Linker) and David Hendry.

The event took place at Mac Arts in Galashiels - a really memorable venue for spoken word. And respect to all the contenders - the standard was excellent. p&g looks forward to more and more slams...
