Welcome home Pip!

A big welcome home from all of Bello Bards and Bellingen residents.
Pip Wilson is back home after many months recovering from a head injury.
He will be back posting on the Blog asap!

Next Bello Poetry Evening will be in 2011!

Marty is going to be overseas until next year and it is the silly season so the next Bello Bards Poetry Meet will be at the end of January.

Also we are hoping to get up A Poetry Slam event as part of the inaugural Bellingen Readers and Writers Festival - April 8-10.

At this stage it will be individual poets competing for a prize ($500, plus runner up and peoples choice prizes; but there will be 3 rounds, 3 min time limit on the poems ( possibly one open round )and 3 judges ... poems must be original and performed!

We are looking at by 2012 having teams of three poets compete, i.e. from regional NSW and beyond!

So all you slam poets, spoken word artists, performance art writers, rap, punk & hip hop (sub) Urban word performers ...GET WRITING!!

More info will be posted as soon as we have things locked in!
