BIG MOUTH BOUT

Genre:

The Big Mouth Bout is a combat-style Blood and Guts Poetry! tournament. Spoken word artists of various weight classes and levels go head-to-head in numerous rounds of lyrical warfare, with the winners advancing to the next rounds and the losers going back to their pens and pads. The B.M.B. is the only no-holds-barred series where it is every poet for him or herself. Just like boxing (its mother sport), there can only be one winner, also known as the Big Mouth Bout champion. The Big Mouth Bout is more than just a poetry competitionit's a battle to the finish. It requires the agility, smarts, and heart of a lion. It mandates passion, zeal, and ferocity. It's not about points. It's not about slam. This is the B.M.B. The Big Mouth Bout. Blood and Guts Poetry! of epic proportions.
