Our calendar for Spoken Word Poetry Events in the year 2014 in Nigeria.



Hello,

Trust you are having a great day. 

Thank you for your interest in our activities.

We have 3 major events that we organize, and they are as follows:

1.    WORD UP (Spoken Word Poetry and Soul Music Event).
Word Up is arguably the biggest Spoken Word Poetry Event in Nigeria, and from August 2012 to August 2013, five editions of Word up were held providing the much needed visibility for Brands we partnered with. We even brought in an internationally renowned Spoken Word Poet (Shihan Van Clief) for our event, Word Up Volume 4 in May 2013, and we celebrated our one year anniversary in August 2013 during Word Up Volume 5.
Our next event, Word Up Volume 6 is scheduled for November 23, 2013 and it will be centered around the United Nation’s “International day for the elimination of violence against women,” with the theme, "Stop the violence."

For the coming year 2014, we will be partnering with  international poets from across the world. 

2.     War Of Words (Slam Poetry Competition)
This is a performance poetry competition that allows poets from all over Nigeria compete against each other.
What makes this exciting is that the Brand that partners with our team will receive leverage as the entries will be centered around the brand’s values and other such matters they might want promoted online.
The competition will be both online and on stage involving video presentations, article writing and Performance Poetry. It promises exciting content and results for brands that partner with us.
There will be cash prizes for the top 3 poets and partners can offer additional gifts of value to the winning poets.

3.     Word Up Talk Series 3 ( a Seminar/Workshop on the Business of Spoken Word Poetry in Nigeria)
We will be offering workshops, training and tips to empower poets and aspiring poets on how to write and perform good poems as well as turn it into profit.


Please find below our event calendar for 2014.
