Do you have Shakespeare’s way with words? Are you aged 16 to 26?

Tricycle Theatre is inviting IdeasTap members to enter their Lyrical Fireworks competition.

The top prize is the chance to perform your work at the Tricycle’s Poetry Live event on 31 March 2014. You’ll be performing alongside James Massiah, Bridget Minamore and others.

The winner of this brief will also receive two tickets to Hopelessly Devoted, a signed copy of Kate Tempest’s breakthrough play Wasted, and a performance fee of 25 big ones (pounds). The winning song, poem, or rap will also be shared on the Tricycle blog and via social media to over 30,000 followers – what a great way to share your work!

This brief is open to songwriters, rappers, lyricists and poets. 

Two runners up will also receive signed copies of Wasted and Hopelessly Devoted posters.

Competition entries must be your own original work.

Some things you should know:

  • The winner of this brief will be announced on Thursday 27 March
  • If your poem wins, you will need to be available to perform your work at Poetry Live on Monday 31 March at 4pm. Poetry Live takes place in the Tricycle cinema
  • The winner is responsible for their own travel arrangements but IdeasTap will cover the travel costs up to £50.
  • You may have someone else perform, sing or rap your poem if you wish, but you need to arrange for this yourself and both of you will need to be available to attend Poetry Live on Monday 31 March.
