Call for Participation at WORDSLAM 4

Dear Poets,

The organizers of WordSlam (Culture Advocates Caucus & Goethe Institut, Nigeria) are delighted to inform poets and spokenword artistes that the 4th edition of a feast of poetic flight - desired to encourage young people to express themselves through the medium of poetry, has been scheduled for the last week of November 2009.

Also, this is a call for participation at the event, which we hope will be more exciting than the previous editions.

Should you will to be part of this event, bear in mind that WORDSLAM is a platform for the presentation of live poetry performances, featuring all the tendencies of our traditional folk poetry rendition. The subjects covered by this form of poetry rendition include everyday experiences, history, culture, religion, politics and many others.

Please let us know your intention on or before 31st October 2009. Send in at least two poems you would like to perform, plus a short biography of 200 words about yourself and your career.

As we prepare for the most exciting edition of WordSalm, we bid you an atmosphere of eternal muse.

Yours faithfully,

Aderemi Adegbite
Project Coordinator,
Culture Advocates Caucus
