…and the nominees are…

The 2nd annual Word N Sound Awards are on their way and we need your help to honour those who have worked hard and stood out in 2013. The Word N Sound Committee shortlisted our Top 10 showcase and opened it up to the public to hear who they thought most deserving.

The search for the perfect poem will never end. And if you are a regular at Word N Sound you’d know there isn’t just one poem that comes pretty close to perfect. We’ve been moved by some masterpieces on our stages in 2013 and now its time to give props where props is due.
