Event Description

The second edition of the Tree Origami Crane Open-Mic Poetry Competition has been launched!

So, there’ll be an unrestricted Open-Mic at every Tree session

between now and the end of August.

Come read to us! One prize for best poem. Another for best performance! Nobody loses.

Two Prizes! Best Poem and Best Performance!

You are a poet. You hate other peoples’ rules. So do we. However, these are ours and we gotta have ‘em....


1. All entries must have been read at a Tree Open-Mic session between 27 April and 24 August 2010, inclusive, and must have been video recorded and posted to Tree’s YouTube account.

2. Printed entries can be no more than one page in length, at no less than 12-point type. An entry may

cover, at peril of annoying whoever does the judgin’, both sides of an 8.5” X 11” sheet of paper.

3. Readers can submit multiple entries and must submit at least one self-photograph suitable for publication. (Photographs can be submitted electronically in any format.) A postal or email address is also required.

4. Two winners will be announced at the first Tree session in September 2010; one for best poem and another for the best performance of a poem. The best poem winner will be awarded an Origami Crane, appropriately mounted or not, folded by a local artist using the winning submission. The best performance winner will receive a probably unique and priceless award.

5. Judging will be done by a Very Important Poet, or two, from the Ottawa region.

6. The winners will be featured in the first issue of Tree Leaves following the announcement.

7. Printed entries can be:

a) handed (unfolded, unspindled, unmutilated and unbent) to any member of the Tree executive;

b) emailed to with the subject line “Crane”; or

c) posted (again unfolded, unspindled, unmutilated and unbent) to:
