Oh Boy:

Have I a treat for you!

Come on out to the first poetry slam of the semester tonight! Two-person poems will be written, edited, and rehearsed in the 24 hours before the slam. These pieces will be raw, fresh, and/or tasty, so you will not want to miss out on the feast. Who will win? (It doesn’t matter.) Come out and see!

There will be an open mic before the slam, during which all acts are welcome. Come up and do your crazy act with the monkey if it strikes your fancy so.

And The Good News Poetry Tour will be featuring! Check out a poem from one of them here.
