Announcing the Poetry Pentathlon for 2016

This dynamic competition is a means of testing ALL a poet's skills. Something that challenges them as both a writer and a performer as well as something that proves their ability with classic poetic forms and spontaneous inspiration. Waiting 4 the Bus has developed a genius system for finding the exceptionally talented and creative. The Poetry Pentathlon stands alone as a proper means for testing thepoet/performer. This is not a Poetry Slam – this is the glorious throw down known as the Poetry Pentathlon, a judged poetry reading where contestants compete in 5 events with points awarded on both writing ability and performance style. Warning: the only prizes awarded for the evening are pride and bragging rights; any trophies are gravy and should be considered as such
