Poets and wordsmiths of all ages, styles, and experiences are welcome to compete for the role of victor and a $75 cash prize; the runner-up will receive $25. In addition to the competition, the mic will be open as long as the poetry is flowing. Interested slammers must email to register.

For those who are unaware, a poetry slam is a poetry competition. Slammers must bring at least 3 original poems (one for each round), no more than 4 minutes each. No props, or musical tracks are allowed to accompany your poem.
