Poetry Slam at Tatties!
Thank you all for the last poetry slam ?
We are hosting our last Poetry Slam of 2017 on the 7th of December.
Next year we will continue to have a slam on every first Thursday of the month :)
A poetry slam is a literary competition, where poets/authors read, recite, perform their works.
The audience decides who is the winner. Either by applause or by a jury of 3 to 7 members of the audience, who give each poet notes from 1-10. There is a time limit of 5 minutes for each poet.
Don't let the name "Poetry slam" misguide you, any literary style/form is allowed; poetry, prose, anything in between, as long as it fits into the time limit. There is no theme/topic, so you can do almost anything: funny, tragic, political, personal etc. Not allowed are: singing, music instruments, props, disguises etc.
There will be 2 rounds: a preliminary round, where all the poets perform, and the final, where the 2 or 3 best poets, as voted by the audience, "compete" for the win! In the final, you must read a diifferent text, so everyone who wants to participate needs at least 2 different texts. Texts written by themselves of course, it is not allowed to read work from other people (except for short quotations). The language chosen is of course up to the author, no restricitions there!
If you want to participate as a slammer please pm to us! Maximum 8 slammers so be quick :)
Otherwise just come have fun and enjoy culture as an audience!
