YOUTH POETRY SLAM, Aug.27

Beyond Words Publishing

This will be another qualifying slam for poets to earn points to try and make the playoffs in March 2013.

Poets gain points by being one of the top 4 highest scoring poets on the night.

We also have cash and prizes for the “phrase of the night”, the lowest scoring poet and the poet who “splits the judges.”

Youth Poetry Slam

Doors and sign up at 7 o’clock
Show starts at 8pm
$4 for 18 and under. $6 for 19 and up

Poetry slams have rules: No props, costumes or pre recorded/live musical accompaniment can be used in the performance. (Beat boxing, whistling, singing and the sampling of songs is ok) There is a 3 minute time limit.

Poets should have at least two 3 minute poems ready. All poetic styles are welcome. Poems do not need to be memorized but it helps. Freedom of speech and expression is encouraged but the Youth Poetry Slam is a hate free zone and queer friendly.
