WeSLAM presents: The New Sh!t Slam

new shits on the block

WeSLAM‘s heard that poem, like, a thousand times and they’re totally sick of it, okay??

WeSlam is calling all Wespoets to the stage to share whatever’s just hit the page. 2 rounds of brand spankin’ new poetry. It’s the perfect chance for novice poets to hit the stage and for vets to get back to the page. ‘Cause hey – if it’s new, it’s gewd. Bring one new poem if you have sh!t to share; bring two new poems to go for gold. Also, open mic! Woah! If you’re down with the new sh!t, send an email to weslam[dot]wesleyan[at]gmail[dot]com after 5pm on Saturday (the day of the slam).
