Super Poem Sunday 2021
A Virtual Poetry Slam
$100 First Prize
Finals Sunday Feb 7th 2021
For over 10 years, on Long Island, NY we've had a special Super Bowl Sunday poetry tradition "Super Poem Sunday!" a fantastic live event held at the Walt Whitman Birthplace.
60-70 poets compete every year, and there are 3 winners. What's more the event is always over in time for the Super Bowl, so the poets who are both sports fans and poetry fans can attend both.
The venue was always packed and we always had a ton of fun. Obviously, this year, we can't gather like usual... so we're going to do something slightly different in the meantime...
Super Poem Sunday is going virtual for 2021!
We're going to do the slam virtually this year. We will have a qualifying round before the actual day, and then the finalists will compete in a live virtual event at 1:00pm on Super Bowl Sunday!
How It Works:
1: If you are interested in competing fill out the form and pay the $10 entry fee.
2: Send us a video (3 minutes or less) of you reciting a poem
(no background music, no props.)
Include your name and where you are from.
3: We will post the videos and have a preliminary round to decide who is in the finals.
4: On Super Bowl Sunday we will have the final round live virtually and decide the winners and award the prizes!
(If you are not competing, but just want to spectate, viewing is totally free!)
