Last July, the WCDR breakfast meeting was alive with the sounds of laughter and tears as we held our first SLAM competition. By popular demand, we’re bringing it back in 20112
Here’s how it works:
• Paid-up members can audition at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening, July 4th in Whitby (The Brock House, 918 Brock St. North, Whitby, ON L1N 4J6).
• Those who wish to vie for a place at the July breakfast meeting will each have THREE MINUTES TOPS to perform an original piece of writing.
• CREATIVEJAMES (our own James Dewar) will host the audition round. Judges (who will hold up Olympic-style cards to rate each competitor) will be Sally Moore, Dorothea Helms and surprise guest judges.
• The SEVEN highest-scoring slammers will advance to the FINAL ROUND to be held at the WCDR breakfast meeting on Saturday, July 14th.
• At that meeting, hosted by Dorothea Helms, The Writing Fairy, audience members will enjoy all 7 performances and then vote on a ballot for their favourite slammer.
• While the votes are being counted, We will be entertained by a prominent Slam performer from the Toronto scene (name to be advised shortly)
• The SLAM WINNER will take home the coveted WCDR SLAM GAVEL TROPHY and $100.00 cash!
