Our 3rd summer poetry slam with the Baguio Writers' Group, Likhaan: The UP Institute of Creative Writing and the 52nd UP National Writers' Workshop!
Come for a sizzling evening of words spoken just so, sending shivers down to your... Never mind. You get the picture.
Poets, prepare to do battle!
The slam is an open competition. Anyone can join! There will be three elimination rounds.
Competing poets will randomly pick and perform a poem from a set compiled by the organizers. Judging for this round will be based entirely on performance.
Poets who make it to this round will perform an original piece that they prepared beforehand.
The finalists will be given a theme and 10 minutes in isolation to write a poem on the theme. They will be called in one by one to perform their fresh piece.
Watch out for announcements on prizes and our esteemed panel of judges.
Registration fee for competing poets: P150*
*Proceeds will go to the library of the Bila Tribal Youth Center in Bauko, Mt. Province.
Sparks will fly!
