Call for Applications – Poetry&Words 2013

Calling all poets, lyricists, spoken word artists, troubadours, story tellers, stand-up poets and slam champs…

2013 is now upon us and for those of us in festie land, June is just around the corner.  We’re now ready to open the floodgates to all you wonderful talented poetry types once again.  If you want to perform your work on Glastonbury Festival’s poetry stage, then this is your chance.  We’re looking for applications from experienced writers and performers who can leave the Glastonbury audience speechless (in a good way!).  If you think that could be you, then please e-mail with your poetry c.v. and 1-3 video and/or audio files of you performing your work.  We’re happy to receive either attachments (of a manageable size!) or web links.  We can also provide a snail mail address if you’d rather do things the old fashioned way!

Applications close at midnight on Sunday 10th March 2013.

Applications received (by post or e-mail) after this date will not be accepted.

Please note that we receive a high volume of applications and are therefore unable to reply to individual e-mails.  Successful artists should hear back from us as by two months after the deadline.
