audition for iamb
Record yourself reading just ONE original poem by you (in English) and save it as MP3, M4A or WAV.
Your poem doesn't have to be one you'd like to appear on iamb – this is just to get a feel for your poetry and how you read it.
Don't choose an 'edgy' poem with offensive language or imagery, as this will be rejected immediately.
Send your details in Step 1, then upload and send your recording AND your poem's text in Step 2 (Word, TXT, RTF or G Docs only).
The filenames of your recording AND your text file MUST include your full name plus the poem's title.
Check to see there's a confirmation message after each step – if you get an error, please try again.
Wait till Feb 19th – if you haven't had an email invitation to iamb by then, you've been declined on this occasion.
Please wait 6 months before auditioning again (you could be invited at a later date).
If you are invited, you'll either be part of wave five of iamb, or offered a place in a future wave.
