Bangkok Poetry Slam
25 November

Calling ALL Poets!



The Pen, mightier than the sword, some argue.

The Voice, more powerful than a split atom.

It is time to use them both.



Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy presents:



The BANGKOK POETRY SLAM

Friday, November 11, 2022



..........................................................................................................

What is a Poetry Slam?

Putting a dual emphasis on writing and performance, a Poetry Slam is the modern-day and competitive art of Spoken Word Poetry.



In a Poetry Slam, participating poets perform their original works which are then scored by a panel of judges. The judges score on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being the lowest, 10 being the highest) based on the poet's content and performance delivery. The highest and lowest score are dropped and the remaining three are added to give the final score of the poet.



What is Spoken Word Poetry?

Spoken Word Poetry is a performance focused recital of original poetry. The poetry can cover ANY topic and is open to different styles and techniques. It is a powerful form of creative expression, which gives writers the opportunity, and the outlet, to present their Voice.



Who can enter the slam?

ANYONE. New poets, old poets, non-poets, amateur poets, professional poets, the poet who wrote their first poem yesterday, and the one who just finished their 10,000th poem. ANYONE. Everyone.
