The Restless Poetry Slam at the Wayfarer's Rest

Recommended Posts



Are you a poet? Do you have a competitive side? Do you want to prove just how good a poet you are?


Prove it at The Restless Poetry Slam!


Along with our customary great service, we are proud to host a chance for the poets of Eorzea to show off their skills amidst a crowd of avid listeners. Regale the crowd with your finest rhymes. Be it in meter or not, in couplets or tercets or quatrains, all is welcome. Don’t feel like being in the contest but you still want to perform you piece? Feel free!


Prizes will be awarded to the winners of the contest, and a special prize will be given to the one whom the audience votes the best. The contest prizes will be announced at a later date.


You don’t want to perform but would like to listen to Eorzea’s astounding poets? We have food and drink aplenty and space for you and yours to relax! Come enjoy our signature drinks. Perhaps our Sundsteigen wine would suit your palette, or a tankard or our in-house Wayfarer Ale. Has your palette not been claimed by Eorzean customs yet? Perhaps a tea or a cup of sake would be preferable. Try our Bomb Croquette, our Behemoth Wings, or one of our other signature dishes made fresh for you.


Good food, good drinks, great company, and wonderful poetry. Come as a guest, leave as family. We look forward to serving you.
