From the Facebook event:
WeSLAM is back and ready for YOUR poetry. But with the start of a new semester, we thought we’d change things up a bit. Slam poems have traditionally been limited to 3 minutes…but we think you can spit your shit in an even shorter amount of time. So without further ado, we are introducing WeSLAM’s first ever…
SHORT POEM SLAM!!! Tomorrow! 8:30 PM! WestCo Cafe!
The rounds will go like this:
- 1st round: 1 minute poem
- 2nd round: 30 second poem
- 3rd round: 15 second poem (remember, haikus exist!)
Everybody is welcome. Poets, get to WestCo Cafe right at 8:15PM to sign up. Bring your shortest of poems. Besides the time limit, regular rules apply.
But that’s not all. To start things off, Sierra DeMulder, one of the most accomplished and recognizable young women in the world of slam poetry, will be featuring. She’s a freaking beast! You won’t wanna miss this. Video after the jump.
- WHEN?: Tomorrow (February 9th) @ 8:30pm, signups @ 8:15pm
- WHERE?: WestCo Café
- WHY?: Because it will be an excellent start to your semester.
