Literary linguistics your love; poetic pondering your passion?

Step right up to the excitement queue for Nozslam 2014. We’ll be pitching the very best wordsmiths the Noz community has to offer against each other in a phenomenal prehistoric poetical skirmish!
For those who do not know, a slam is performance poetry, but with a playful competitive edge. Poems can be funny, sad, angry, happy, political, topical, rhythmic, lyrical, sky blue or polka dot pink with orange stripes… whatever it is that tickles your cerebrum, just so long as it is tickled in less than three and a half minutes!

Whether you’ve been involved in a slam before, or you’re just a lyrical genius that’s been waiting for their moment, if you think you’ve got what it takes then put together a video of your piece and send it over to us at [email protected] (before 25th May).

Once we’ve got all the poems submitted we’ll upload them onto onto our YouTube channel and we’ll let the public have their say, voting with their feet (okay, fingers) to give us a shortlist, and then our judges will pick their four favourites from the top ten most liked videos.

These four finalists will receive free tickets to Nozstock 2014 to perform with the Tent of Temporary thought in front of the very best crowd in the world and our five judges!

The most convincing contributor will receive; as well as heaps of love and adoration; a pair of tickets to Nozstock 2015 and a performance slot at Tent of Temporary Thought 2015. Not to mention your UK travel expenses paid for both years, food, drinks, hoodies, bags, pens, t-shirts and a lovely interview and poets profile on the Nozstock website. Phew!

Now isn’t that the most attractive proposal you’ve had all year? So what are you waiting for? Activate your most artistic attributes and send in your video! Check out the Nozslam page for full details and information on how to apply…

Here’s one we made earlier!
