Swindon Festival of Literature
Fri 12 May
THINK SLAM – philosophy as thought-provoking entertainment!
Presented in association with the Swindon Philosophical Society
This is what will happen at the eighth Swindon Think Slam. Competitors have 3 minutes to present a thought-provoking idea, theory, or story. From then on, it’s a knockout! Keen but kindly judges, chosen from among the keen and kindly audience and including Stephen Law as judge-supremo, will decide who pleases the thinking parts that others cannot reach, who inspires good, great, or gruesome thoughts and who does not.
Just as in all good sporting competitions, there will be a first round and a final! Though there may well be moments of seriousness, nervousness and puzzlement, a spirit of wonder, wit and good cheer will prevail!
The winner will be crowned eighth Swindon Think Slam Champ and receive a bubbly-filled trophy, rapturous applause, and words of congratulation from our guest judge supremo Stephen Law.
Cool compere, thinker and writer in her own right, Sara-Jane Arbury will maintain good Think Slam order with clear instructions, firm hand and thoughtful slam smile; and will be ably aided by sensible scorer, terrifying timekeeper and crowd-pleasing prizes-provider Matt Holland.
HOW TO ENTER: Anyone brave and thoughtful enough, by their own standards, can apply to enter. If you wish to enter the eighth Swindon THINK SLAM, please contact the Festival on 01793 771080 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
