Way back in April we alerted you to a local poetry contest worth getting excited about – the “Single Onion 100 Calgary Poetry Contest”. Single Onion is Calgary's longest-running spoken word series. In their twelfth year of lining Calgary up with a variety of renowned Canadian poets, as well as up-and-coming local artists, SO will celebrate their 100th event and for the occasion they want to know how local poets see Calgary.
The deadline for submissions was August 15, 2012, but IT GOT EXTENDED!
The new deadline is September 15th, 2012.
Ten finalists will be chosen to perform at the SO100 Celebration Event on Saturday, November 17, 2012.
Prize money remains the same:
3rd place – $150, 2nd place – $300, 1st place - $1000
For full contest details visit the Single Onion blog. This is also the place where you can find the reading series' upcoming schedule of events, which usually take place the third Thursday of every month.
