As part of Litfest 2012, Epiphany is working together with Word Forward to organize NTU’s first ever Poetry Slam!
The slam is slated to happen on the 7th of March (Wednesday) at our usual spot, the HSS Black Box (NTU School of Humanities and Social Sciences B2) from 7pm to 9pm. Attractive prizes to be won, proudly brought to you by our partners Caran d’Ache and Jaben, and also our sponsors The Pigeon Hole and Baggu.
Don’t worry if you have never taken part in a slam before, for there is a Poetry Slam workshop (absolutely free-of-charge) to help you prep. Don’t forget to bring 2 original poems written by yourself to the workshop.
See you there!

EPIPHANY is proud to have our own Professor Jennifer Crawford and poet Nilofer Ashraff read us their poetry on the night of the 10th of November at our Open Mic session. A few of our student poets read their poetry too, and we had many musical performances put up by our very own NTU students.
It was a wonderful night and we hope everyone got their well-deserved break after essays-rushing. Exams are almost over (perhaps even already over for some of us), so hang in there!
Open-mic will be back in January, so till then, enjoy your holidays and look out for our holiday events!
