WeSlam Featuring G Yamazawa: Preliminary Slam No. 2

Weslam is back with more poetry for Homecoming:

10 poets. 2 rounds. Who will take the next four spots in the Wesleyan Final Slam? Come watch these poets battle with beautiful words THIS SATURDAY @7:30 in 200 Church. Anyone is welcome to slam, regardless of experience (hit the jump at the end for IMPORTANT DETAILS ON SIGNING UP). You’re not going to want to miss this. And we don’t want you to either.

Our feature is the fantastic G Yamazawa. Only 21, G Yamazawa is widely considered one of the top young spoken word artists in the country, having featured in venues including the Sundance Film Festival, Bonnaroo Music Festival, and the historic Nuyorican Poets’ Cafe. He is a National Poetry Slam Finalist, two-time Individual World Poetry Slam Finalist, and two-time Southern Fried Champion.

THERE WILL ALSO BE A WORKSHOP lead by G himself in PAC 136 @ 2pm on Saturday 10/20 (The same day as the slam)
