iGo Live - Write-a-letter Poetry Slam

Oh no, you`ve missed the stream

Thanks for joining us, bit you`re a bit late. The live stream is over, but we look forward to seeing you at our next live stream event.

Write-a-letter Poetry Slam


Please note, this event has been rescheduled to 24th September 2020.

Poems, letters, texts and emails travel like paper planes or messages in bottles. As we sit out COVID at home, consider what kind of letter you would write to a younger or future self. Log in and listen to the poets switching from an inner Red Riding Hood to their Big Bad Wolf persona. (Yep, we have both). Or see and hear letter-poems addressed to friends or enemies, pet or plant. You might also gain something from the witty advice-poems delivered to a loved/hated public figure.In short, the epistle is an ancient form updated this month for Poetry Slam. International slammers and audiences welcome.

Grab your tickets and join us online.
For audiences, five lucky audience members will be chosen randomly to be our judges for the night. We’ll also have our exciting’ Kahoot Quiz for audience members to win a special poetry book prize!

For poets,
ten slots are available on a first come first slam basis. Request for a slot in the comments below on our Facebook event page! The two best poets on the night will win S$50 and S$25 respectively!

Slam Rules:
- Each poem must be of the poet’s own construction up to 3 minutes in length;
- If the poet goes over time, points will be deducted from the total score.
- Five judges will be chosen at random from the audience to score the poets out of 10.
- No musical instruments, costumes, props or animal acts!
- Of the scores the poet received from the five judges, the high and low scores are dropped and the middle three are added together, giving the poet a total score of 0-30
