Poets, these events are open sign up, so if you would like to compete just bring three poems (one for each round, if you make it to all three rounds) and show up early(6:30pm ish) to assure you have a space. Each piece should be no longer than 3 minutes or points will be taken off your score. No props, no costumes – just you, the mic, and your words.Audience, you are vital too. Whether you are a judge or just a raucous viewer, we need your love and encouragement to keep the energy high and the momentum rolling. Get loud, get rowdy, and show your support for the people on stage pouring out their hearts to you.All donations will go directly towards the Flying Monkey Theatre for use of the venue and the 2017 poetry slam team fund.
