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 perform@puffinculturalforum.org to register.
