Attention Poets, Sound Artists, Voice Artists…
Making Waves is now live! Falmouth Poetry Group’s new competition for the spoken word is now open for entries.
Last weekend Cornwall Contemporary Poetry Festival hosted the announcement of an unusual kind of poetry competition for 2016-17 to be judged by the award-winning poet and performer LUKE WRIGHT.
The competition has been conceived to encourage poets to develop their skills in the spoken word and find fine expression of their art through digital recordings (.mp3/.m4a).
Collaboration is also possible. Perhaps, as a writer, you are uncomfortable speaking your words even though you know exactly what they mean and how they should sound, this need not exclude you from entering. We can imagine entrants making use of the voice or voices that they find the most suitable for the material. Similarly, you might think that the manipulation of the recording with digital tools could add some interpretive qualities.
Do not feel, however, that you must be a casting director or digital wizard! It is always possible that the most moving and effective expression is in the simple, unaccompanied and unadorned voice of the poet.
It costs £6.00 to enter your first recording with subsequent entries costing only £4.00. You may send in as many entries as you like. Entries combined with payment will be acknowledged.
Details of how to pay, via PayPal are on this website along with the email address for entries. https://cornwallcontemporary.wordpress.com/
