WeSLAM Poetry Workshop – Saturday, 4:00 PM

poetry forever alone

WeSLAM wants you to be the very best (poet), like no one ever was:

Do you have a poem that you are thinking about performing in a poetry slam, but you want some help and suggestions and edits? Or do you just want to work on some material with a lovely, good-looking group of poets? We are having a poetry slam workshop this Saturday at 4 PM in Allbritton 311! All are welcome. We will help out with page edits or performance edits or both. Bring what you are working on!

Date: Saturday, October 12
Time: 4PM
Place: Allbritton 311

WeSLAM: Caroline Rothstein + Joseph LMS Workshop–SIGNUPS TMRW (11/10) @ 5PM

From WeSLAM:

Caroline Rothstein and Joseph LMS–two nationally renowned and generally badass poets and members of the Intangible Collective–are going to be featuring at this Saturday’s final preliminary slam.

But in addition, these two fantastic performers will be hosting a poetry workshop prior to the slam (taking place at 4:30pm on Saturday at a TBD location). While our past workshops have been focused primarily on writing, this one is going to be specifically focused on performance, which means that in order to participate, you are required to bring one (1) poem of your own creation that you are comfortable reciting without the help of the printed page (“memorized” in poetry speak).

Now, unfortunately due to time constraints, we can only take a limited number into the workshop. In an effort to keep things fair, and give everyone equal opportunity to participate, we’ll be using a first-come-first-served online sign-up, starting Thursday evening. If you are hoping to participate in the workshop, send an email containing your name and class year to the WeSlam email address–weslam.wesleyan(at)gmail(dot)com–any time after 5pm tomorrow (Thursday, November 10th). The first twenty people to send their emails will get a slot. Any messages sent before 5pm will not count. If for some reason you will not have access to a device capable of sending electronic mail, you can have a friend send the message for you, as long as ze hirself is not signing up.

WeSLAM Poetry Workshop

From WeSLAM:

Always wanted to slam but haven’t “gotten around to it” yet? Have lots of poems but no idea how to perform them? Want some feedback on work you have written?

Come to the WeSLAM Poetry Workshop! This Saturday the 15th! 4:30pm! Usdan 110!

The 2nd Preliminary Slam is just around the corner on Thursday, October 20th. This workshop is open to anyone, whether you’re planning to slam or not, but we would definitely encourage anyone who is planning to spit at the prelims to come through. We can focus on both writing and performance (and we may even have some guest workshop-ers coming in to help out). Newcomers welcome (this is a great way to start out), as well as slam veterans. Brings poems and your beautiful selves.
