Poetry for the Pandemic - Writing Workshop

Slam poetry is an exciting artform that brings the classic expressiveness of poetry into a less-structured and more accessible package!


For ECCMID, we are happy to be hosting 4 slam poetry workshops, one on each day of ECCMID, where participants can meet up in the company of a slam poet to express their life experiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic through the medium of slam poetry.

It could be about what has been happening in your hospital, at home or even online – whatever it is, we want to hear you slam about it!

A valid ECCMID registration is required in order to register for the workshop.
