Want to perform your poetry on the radio? The annual Hannah’s Bookshelf Live Poetry Special is back! (But not quite live…)

“On Saturday 3rd April, Hannah’s Bookshelf on North Manchester FM will be hosting its annual (Not Quite) Live Poetry Special. And once again, I’d like to invite poets and spoken word performers to get involved and perform their work on the show” writes presenter Hannah Kate.


“Due to COVID restrictions, it’s still not possible to invite performers into the studio, so I’ll be asking poets to pre-record their performance with me prior to the show. The good news is that means we can invite poets from anywhere in the world to perform, as geography isn’t a barrier!”

“Whether you’re a veteran performer or new to reading your work, I’d love to hear from you. Drop me a line via emailtweet me or message me on Facebook if you’d like to perform or would like more information about how to take part. Slots are limited, and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis”.

The Hannah’s Bookshelf (Not Quite) Live Poetry Special will be going out on North Manchester FM on Saturday 3rd April at 2-4pm. It will be broadcast on 106.6FM (in the North Manchester area) and online (for the rest of the world). Performance slots are 6 minutes long.
