WOWps 2011 Host City Call Out
« on: August 28, 2009, 09:55:20 AM »
Peace Everyone!!

La Shaun phoenix Moore here as the Event Coordinator for Women of the World Poetry Slam!

If there are any other parties interested in hosting WOWps 2011, please make your intention known here or via email to myself by September 11, 2009.   My email is:

powerfulblackwoman19@gmail.com 

Subject line should be: "WOWps 2011 Host"

At that point all interested parties will receive from me a vetting packet of questions and considerations regarding your potential to host the event, which you will return by September 25, 2009.  It is my intention to have the EC make a decision on WOWps 2011 during their EC Retreat scheduled for October 24-26, 2009.
 
Please understand that this is not a request for "I'll do it if you need me to" bids.  We already have cities who have officially had their bids approved and ready to be voted on.  This is a call for cities who WANT to host for 2011.  Also, you need not have the bid completed to state interest.  That's what the vetting packet you'll receive is for.

Anyone can bid for WOWps.  It need not be a SlamMaster or even a member of PSi.

Looking forward to hearing from all of you!

Warmest,

~phoenix

They should be confirmed by next week.  They are tentatively scheduled for March 9-12, 2011 in Columbus.  We plan to confirm these dates shortly.

Thanks for keeping us on task!

Any chance there will be some sort of a schedule of events available?

I know it's wildly early by poet standards, but for anyone applying for grant money to attend, grantors expect tangible evidence and it would be amazing to have some to show them.

I thought I'd hop on this thread to let those following it know that WOWps 2011 (to be held in Columbus, OH) starts Wed., March 9 2011 with a Last Chance slam. Prelim bouts begin the next night, Thurs., March 10, 2011. They continue through Fri., March 11, 2011. Finals will be held at the Lincoln Theatre Sat., March 12.

The schedule should be firming up very soon. It's going to be great!

Thanks to everyone! WOWps would not be possible without the work of previous host city committees and the community at large!
