CALLING ALL POETS, spoken word artists, wordsmiths, lyricists, raconteurs, stand-up poets and slam champs…

2015 is flexing its lexicon in anticipation of a phenomenal year, and we at Poetry&Words are once again opening the floodgates to all you wonderfully talented poetry types.  SO, 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, with something awesome to offer the audience of the world’s biggest greenfield arts festival.

If you think that could be you, then please e-mail poetryandwords@hotmail.co.uk with a short Bio 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!

We do pay a fee, but this is only small, and overseas poets in particular should note that we are unable to provide travel expenses.  Guest tickets are also beyond our power, but booked poets will receive a ticket for themselves as well as a camping pitch backstage of the Poetry&Words tent.

The deadline for applications is, strictly, 5pm on Friday 6th March 2015. We regret, we cannot view any applications received (by post or e-mail) after this time, so please make a note of the deadline and make sure you submit as much in advance as possible. Don’t miss your chance!

We hope that you’ll understand that, given the positively mammoth volume of applications we receive every year, we are not physically able to reply to individual emails or to let every applicant know how they’ve done. Successful artists should hear back from us by two months after the deadline.
