War Of Words (Slam Poetry Competition) is an event to discover and bring to limelight new, exciting and talented Spoken Word Poets based in Nigeria. It is an avenue to view and promote the performances of new poets and also, a selection process of new poets that will get to step up and perform at the biggest Spoken Word Poetry event in Nigeria, WORD UP.

For this maiden edition of War Of Words, we had a total of 23 video entries/ submission from Spoken Word Poets in different parts of Nigeria using the theme "In it to win."  We even had entries from 10 and 16 year old females poets. However, only 15 poets will be selected by our in-house panel to compete on stage at the main event on Sunday June 30, 2013.
