In August, Slamalamadingdong is taking a team of four poets, with coaches, to Chicago to compete in the National Poetry Slam. Our 2018 NPS team includes Tenda McFly, Nour Abouzeid, Ziimusic and Tim Evans
Every year, Slamalamadingdong sends its top four poets from the annual Grand Slam in May to compete in Poetry Slam, Inc.'s National Poetry Slam. Around 80 slams, mostly from the US, compete in a week-long tournament and festival. Our poets get to compete on an international stage and Slama gets connect with the US slam poetry community, our poets get to network and develop their craft.
This doesn't come cheap. We need as much help us possible to raise funds for flights, accomodation, slam registration, insurance, meals, and stuff we haven't even thought of yet.
Donate below to help us raise the $20,000 needed. Lots of small donations and a few big ones are what helps us get over the line. Any amount counts. We'll be having silent auctions, fundraisers, and other special ways to help out. And buying tickets and coming along to Slama each month helps too.
You can also donate directly via Bank Transfer.
