2021 Preview

While 2020 was certainly an awesome year for the Extemper’s Bible, 2021 will be even better! Here’s what you can expect for 2021:

  • A competitive and intense national points race, with updates from tournaments like MBA, the TOC, NCFLs, and NSDA Nationals.
  • Free extemp sessions, hosted by top-tier extemp talent. Our first session will be in late January and sign-up information will be provided on this website at a later date!
  • A tournament guide for ETOC & TOC bid tournaments. In this guide, we’ll provide information about pricing, tournament locations, tournament dates, and more, so you’ll never have to worry about tournament registration again.
  • More articles on a consistent basis! You can expect articles every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday.
  • The resumption of our podcast, and our YouTube channel. Both are also called the Extemper’s Bible, so check them out!
  • A free, virtual camp, hosted in the summer of 2021. Expect top-tier talent to help with coaching.
  • Questions that test your knowledge of the news; to check out these questions, follow our Instagram (@theextempersbible)! We’re currently taking a break, but plan to resume these questions on January 4th.
  • A slate of exciting interview guests, all of whom are nationally-acclaimed extemp specialists.
  • And more!

Overall:

2020 has been an exciting year, largely thanks to the EB (Extemper’s Bible) community, and we promise you: 2021 will only be better. So, keep your eyes peeled for future posts and please spread the word! It means a lot to us.
