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 are planning on being on the deck of the Constitution in August, and maybe see some poetry later, I have a job for you!
Requirements: PSi membership (You can get this here on the web site!), A lot of Slam experience, a great attitude, the ability to show up in Boston on time (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: The National Poetry Slam will be in Boston (and also Cambridge) MA.
When: August 8-13, 2011
Who: All the cool kids (and also me)
