Poetry Slam Update!

Details for registration / rulesfor the Slam will be up on the BRWF web site in the next week, but basically you will be directed to register with me by emailing with your details. Basically there will be a registration fee of $10 for poets entering the competition, payable on the night. Numbers will be limited so get in quickly; because it is all happening on the one night there will be a cut off at 20 poets and round 2 will be culled by the judges to 10, then round 3, 5 poets.

Two of the judges will be taken from the audience on the night. there will be an entry fee of $5 to the Bowlo on the night. Our very own Marty Guy is sponsoring The Peoples Choice award with a generous offer of $200. Bellingen Cellars on Hyde St is providing $100 for the runner up!

We hope all you local poets will support the event... that some of you will enter in to the comp and look to setting a good standard for making it bigger and better in 2012.

Bello Bards will also have some time in the tent that will be in the park opposite the Mem hall on the Saturday of the BRWF, so if you find that the Slam is a bit overwhelming you might want to read then.

We will need assistance on the night ... time keeper / score keeper, sound person, on the door etc so any volunteers will be most welcome.

Cheers Liz
