You, your friends, and your family are encouraged to take the (pre-recorded) stage with your own spoken word and poetry.

With this year’s theme, “alone together”, we ask you for a poem, sonnet, haiku, or performance about how the Holiday season feels this year, how it’s affecting people, and how to try and make it better. Aiming to make people feel less alone while we’re apart.

NEW THIS YEAR
We’re filming all our poets and spoken word artists at a safe distance and launching the video on Holiday Alley TV on Saturday, December 5!
