I was going to hold off on plugging this awesome group until a bit later, but since they’re doing a competition I thought I might as well do it now. Loud Poets are a new performance poetry collective based in Edinburgh (where I study), with some really amazing talent. Their launch is in February (which I’m sure I’ll be hyped about closer to the time), and promises to be an unmissable night.
In the meantime, they’re running a competition to promote their launch, which anyone can enter. You can find their details and the details of the competition on the link below (on their facebook page), but the long and short of it is that they’re look for people to email them short videos of people performing their own poetry. No need to be based in Edinburgh, or even the UK. Any takers?
