The VERSES Bocas Poetry Slam is a national spoken word competition sponsored by First Citizens. Started on the University of the Southern Caribbean’s campus in 2012 by a group of driven, socially conscious young artistes known as the 2 Cents Movement, the support of the Bocas Lit Fest and sponsorship from First Citizens has seen this event grow into a national showdown between the best local spoken word artists, competing for over TT$30,000 in prizes. Past winners include Crystal Skeete, who took the top prize in 2013 with the piece “Maxi Man Tracking School Gyal”, and Idrees Saleem, 2014 winner.
