Rise Up: Take Back the Mic
Call for Poets

Your revolution starts now. Your revolution is the what-if, the could-be, the should-be, the will-be. Your revolution is politics, semantics and artistics. Gather up the critics, the cynics, the mystics, the mavericks, the beatnicks: this is your manifesto, so manifest your destiny.

Rise up, and take back the mic.

Nextfest, Catch the Keys Productions and Breath In Poetry present:

Take Back the Mic
The Second Annual Nextfest Slam
Saturday, June 6, 2015 at 9pm
Mercer Warehouse (10363 104 Street)

Twelve emerging poets compete in a three-round elimination for a $500 top prize. Rise Up is a politically themed event – brings us your best political poems, rants and raves.

The twelve participating poets will be selected by our curation team from the list of those who apply. To be considered, please send the following information to bdart@catchthekeys.ca by 12Noon Friday, May 15:

  • Name (please include your legal name and performance name if applicable)
  • Email address
  • Twitter handle
  • Two samples of your written work and/or two samples of video or audio recordings

Please note: each participating poet will receive a small honorarium. In the case of Nextfest, emerging refers to artists under the age of 30 who are not professionally represented.
