POETRY SLAM COMPETITION
slam poetry competition
NOW ON THIS THURSDAY 20 OCTOBER
NELSON REGIONAL EVENT. LIVE. MUSSEL INN.
THURSDAY 20 OCTOBER, 7.30 PM.
A POETRY SLAM is a spoken word event where poets ‘slam off’ against each for the honour of representing the Golden Bay/Nelson region at the National event in Auckland in November.
Competitors come armed with three poems, each no more that three minutes long and each being performed from memory. No props are allowed – just your voice.
The event is run over three rounds, with competitors dropping out until three are left in the final round. Each round is judged by random audience judges who mark each performance out of 10. After round one, the top six scores go through to round two and from round two the top three scores go through to round three.
The winner is flown to Auckland to represent Golden Bay/Nelson in the National finals.
Sound like a bit of fun to you? Full details will be provided to all competitors on the night.
