Announcing a Poetry Slalom:  The TORn Founder’s day Version of a Poetry Slam! Can't Post




This is a noncompetitive version of the worldwide phenomenon known as a Poetry Slam
(http://nps2013.poetryslam.com/...what-is-poetry-slam/),
in this case without winners or losers, but simply for the joy of verse in all its forms!

However “Mods Ups!” and “Hurrahs” of all kinds are allowed, and even encouraged.Cool

Also, this version is based on the “Theme Slam” in which the poetry is expected to conform to a particular theme. In this case, the larger theme is Tolkien and all his writings, and the sub-themes are the founding of TORn, the Founders themselves, and the LOTR and Hobbit movies by Peter Jackson.

Our Slalom Slam invites poetry that weaves in and around any or all of those themes. You may use only one theme or element, or as many as you can work in!

Jump right in and celebrate not only our Founders, but their Reason for Being (here)!

Happy Founders Day!
