WeSLAM, Wesleyan’s premiere spoken-word organization, wants to know if you would be interested in participating a 24-hour group slam. Basically what this means is that you would be paired up with a fellow poet on a Friday night, you would brainstorm ideas for a group piece (examples: 1, 2, and 3), and then you would wake up early Saturday morning and get writing. On Saturday night, you would compete against other group poems for a chance at first place.
If this sounds remotely fun to you at all, then please email Coz Deicke ’15 at cdeicke(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.

Prayers have been answered! The Wesleyan poetry slam is coming to Church tomorrow night!
From the Facebook event page:
The AASC (Asian American Student Collective) & weSLAM bring you round TWO of the Spring Slam Series. Join us WEDNESDAY at 200 CHURCH for a suggested donation of $1.
12 poets. 2 rounds.
Which 3 will advance to the SPRING CHAMPIONSHIP SHOWDOWN?
Only time (and poetry!) will tell.
Come spit. Come listen. Come feel things with us.
This is your 2nd of 3 chances to make it to the Championship Slam in April.
And no, “come spit” does not mean you are free to literally eject saliva from your mouth while in 200 Church, silly.
