This virtual, open mic event will be broadcast during the NGC Bocas Lit Fest, 23-25 April.
You can join our exciting lineup of 2021 Festival writers by submitting a video recording of yourself reading or performing a piece of original writing–whether prose, poetry, or spoken word. Open to Caribbean writers and performers at home and the diaspora. Videos must be no longer than 5 minutes, and submitted by 6pm on 3 April 2021.
Video Submission Guidelines
- Whatever file format your device records in would be fine.
- Videos should be shot in a landscape orientation on a sturdy surface.
- Good lighting and audio are essential.
- Background should be free of distractions e.g. busy kitchen countertops, cluttered desks.
- Be sure that your camera is in focus and that you’re clearly visible to your virtual audience.
- Your video must be no longer than 5 minutes. Recordings beyond that time will be cut off at the 5 minute mark.
