So I’ve been so busy these last two weeks with Erring on the Mount that I wasn’t able to post my blog photo. It’s the first time in almost five years that I’ve missed a post.
Next week I’ll be posting some photos of what I’ve been up to out at the convent, but for now, I’m presenting you with my two week old photos of the Peterborough Poetry Slam finals.
This is an audience member/judge “calibrating” their scoring after the reading by a “sacrificial poet,” a volunteer poet who is the first one to present giving the judges a chance to see where they land in the group of five or six judges.
Scores are given out of a possible ten points. This judge appears to be somewhat tough.
Subject matter can range from social justice to wrestling to favourite pastimes and pet peeves.
It’s a fine evening of great words. Check out the Peterborough Poetry Slam’s Facebook page for information about upcoming events.
Get in touch if you’re a poet and want to face the judges. It’s not entirely painless, but it’s a really good time.
