Join the fray on Saturday, November 26 at Cranberry Community Hall, 7-9pm. Doors at 6:30. $5 suggested donation. Concession includes Raincoast Kombucha and Zoe’s Pretzels! To compete, bring three poems. If this is your first SLAM, or if you’d like to compete, read on…

SLAM is a spoken word competition where the brave, bright and loud get on stage to share their words in front of a hollering, cheering, supportive crowd. At the end of the night a poet is selected as the reigning word warrior and immortalized in name on the one and only SLAM medallion. The top 3 poets go home with a cash share of the door! All ages are welcome, all skill levels are encouraged. Come compete or come enjoy. Everyone is welcome. Be there!

Details for competing performers: A SLAM is carried out in a series of rounds. How many rounds we have will depend on how many people participate up to a maximum of 12 poets. If you want to perform, have at least three poems ready that are under three minutes each. You are docked points over three minutes. Poems do NOT have to be memorized, but it is encouraged.

So get writing! Spit hot fire!

You can register to compete by emailing powellriverpoetryslam@gmail.com or you can sign up at the event between 6:15-6:45 pm.
