LETTER OF INTENT

Entrants are REQUIRED to send a letter of intent to Grim (grimtheskald@gmail.com) or Drake (drakethebard@gmail.com), NO LATER than 11:59 pm on Saturday, April 7, 2021 (TWO WEEKS before the competition.)

With your letter of intent, please include the following: A RESUME each performer shall submit a brief resume such as would fit on an index card listing the performance types and styles e.g. songs, stories, jests, musical instruments, poetry, improvisation of diverse kinds, etc. They are willing to offer upon request, should the performer reach the finals. Competitors are encouraged to be specific. This gives the performers a chance to display versatility as well as skill; and gives the Consules additional information as they audition their next bardic champions.
