"Look, if you had one shot, or one opportunity
To seize everything you ever wanted in one moment
Would you capture it? Or just let it slip?"- Eminem, Lose Yourself
For all those poets and spoken word artists looking to feature at NYC's hottest new spoken word poetry event, The Inspired Word, here's your big chance.
No more claiming to be the greatest - prove it! Put your money where your mouth is and your mouth where the mic is!
The first 25 poets/spoken word artists to sign up for the open mic will get a shot at winning a PAID feature spot at an Inspired Word event during 2011.
Here's how it works:
Every contestant gets ONE shot to blow - for 3 minutes and 3 minutes ONLY (go over the time limit and you'll not only lose SERIOUS points with the judges but likely blow your chances of winning).
WARNING: No hate speech of any kind will be tolerated.
The winner will be decided at the end of the night by a consensus vote from our panel of three judges, our own version of Simon, Randy, and Paula, who will be offering no-holds barred critiques after each performance.
Another Warning: If you can't take the heat of some criticism, don't come into this kitchen..
Second place winner will get 2 comps to future shows, third place 1 comp.
IF YOU'VE ALREADY FEATURED AT THE INSPIRED WORD OR SCHEDULED TO FEATURE, YOU ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR THIS EVENT.
This is a regular Inspired Word feature, staged four times a year - in the Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter.
It's our way to not only level the playing field but ti discover great new talent.
Good luck to all of you !
Remember: "You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow."
Host/MC/Judge: Advocate of Wordz.
Other Judges: Thomas Fucaloro and Seraph Treadwell.
