Announcing StAnza’s 2013 Digital Slam

Friday 5 July 2013

Kevin P. Gilday

If you enjoyed inaugural our Digital Slam last summer (or if you missed it, and are wondering what this is all about), well, we’ve got some great news for you ...

Yep, over the next month or so, we’re going to be hosting our second Digital Slam!

The format is quite simple:

Entry is via a new or recent video or audio performances of one of your poems or spoken word pieces on a platform such as YouTube, Vimeo, PodOmatic, or SoundCloud (please note: it has to be a platform which generates code for embedded media players).

We’ll announce an email address next week to which you can send the URL for this performance. Our panel of judges will select a shortlist, these will go up on our blog and then, once everyone has had a chance to have a look at the entries, we open it up for voting.

We’ll be posting the full details for how-to-enter-etc on this blog next Friday. Meanwhile, you can take a look at last year’s shortlist here, and also read our profile of last year’s winner, Kevin P. Gilday.

Follow us on Twitter – @StAnzaPoetry and/or #DigitalSlam – for more news and updates. We’ll also be posting links and other info on our Facebook page.
