Calling ALL Poets!
Bangkok Lyrical Lunacy presents:
The Revolving Words POETRY SLAM
Friday, May 20th, 2022
This is a special poetry slam we are organizing to support Revolving Words, a feature length film we are currently working on.
During the slam we'll debut the "Sizzle Reel" Trailer of the film. It will be used to present the script to potential investors.
We hope to include local poets in the film, so we are also on the lookout for poets whose work fits into the story.

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