NPS 2009 needs MCs and Bout Managers
« on: May 23, 2009, 07:17:50 PM »

If you are an experienced and energetic showperson, PSi wants your help.

If you lost your NPS qualifier but still want to experience the awesome show that is NPS, be an MC !

If you have been thinking, "How do I get involved in the organization ?" Be a Bout Manager !

If you have Bout Managed for PSI before and are looking to step up to MC, now is your chance!

If you were wondering how great it would be to run a bout after a day at the beach, I have a job for you!

Requirements: PSi membership (You can get this here on the web site!), A lot of Slam experience, a good great attitude, the ability to show up in Florida on time (it's bold because it's important!), working knowledge of NPS rules a plus. Prior WoWPS, IWPS or NPS experience is valued but not a requirement.

There are a limited number of spots for MCs and bout managers at NPS so get your name in early. You will receive a volunteer pass to the event which gives you access to all day and evening events (and usually the finals), just like the poets, and possibly more stage time than the poets themselves !

There will be  daily meetings for MCs and Bout Managers starting on Tuesday.  Attendance at the meeting is mandatory, if you can't make the days meeting, you can't work that night.  I strongly recommend you attend 1 of the 2 NPS Orientation meetings, so you are, you know, oriented.

Where: West Palm Beach
When: August 4-8

If you are still interested, sign up by following this interweb hyperlink!!!

Please feel free to pass this on to other boards, blogs,etc.

Thanks,
Erik Daniel


PS - Please note - this is only for official bout crews, not day events or late night events.  Scott Woods can help you with those! Send him a PM.

I have to talk it over with my Public Relations director Sarah C. to see if I can afford to come to West Palm Beach. Since being at the slam masters meeting a requirement for sending a poet to IWPS, I will try to make it. And yes I have Bout Manager experience @ Nationals in 2002 the great city of Minneapolis, MN. Oh and another thing If I do come don't let me do any Baton Rouge Slam Team Bouts because I know them very well.

I'd like to volunteer to facilitate a workshop and to be a bout manager-host-MC-etc.....
I was bout manager at two venues last year... for extra readings and would love that experience again along with hosting and workshop duties.

Hey,

I'd love to help out with MCing. I've been to the last 2 NPS (austin and Madison) and have been going to the Austin/Neo Soul slams for like 3 or 4 years now (something like that). And I'm awesome on a mic (in the MC type of way). BPE can vouch for that. He can't resist me. ;)

so...yeah. All I gotta worry about is raising the money to fly/drive out there. ^_^

@Dahled, I'm sad you can't MC for me, but glad you will still be on the stage. Good luck.

I don't have direct contact info for Naz, can you have her reach out to me here or via email - support at poetryslam dot com


@chibbi We will be happy to have you.  Make sure you sign up for the mailing list in the OP.

Did you fill out the volunteer form on nationalpoetryslam.com?
