This is your chance to perform at the launch of Calgary’s first major, ongoing Poetry Slam! We’re launching the monthly Calgary Poetry Slam – taking place the last Thursday of every month – with a CBC Bang. 16 poets will each put $10 on the line for the chance to take their work to the national stage and international exposure!
Each poet will perform one poem only, using the theme “Irresistible”, for a maximum of 4 minutes. Reserve your spot ASAP by contacting Mark Hopkins!
Not only will the Calgary Poetry Slam put up-and-coming local poets in the spotlight with celebrated artists, but it will also lead to the creation of a Calgary Slam Team, to compete at Local, National and International Slam Competitions.
Don’t miss the irresistible launch of this Calgary Poetry Phenomenon!
