Your Lewis & Clark Library’s celebration of National Poetry Month concludes with the 8th Poetry on Fire Student Poetry Slam on Wednesday, April 30th at 7PM. A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Scoring is based on the poets' content and performance.
Young poets, in grades 6-12, are invited to come and share their original poems and hear their peer’s work presented in a Poetry Slam setting. Everyone registered participates in the first round. Poems should be read with no use of props, costumes, or musical instruments. Prizes will be awarded!
Poets need to bring three original poems less than three minutes in length. Registration begins at 6:30PM with the Slam beginning at 7PM. Everyone is welcome to come watch our local young poets as they share their original works at the 8th annual Poetry on Fire Student Poetry Slam.
