Poetry Slam

The Poetry Slam is a friendly event where students share their poetry before a supportive crowd.  While the event is competitive, there is also a tremendous sense of camaraderie. The audience snaps, cheers, and applauds whenever they hear something they love--even if it is from a competitor.

  1. Get the contract signed and returned to Mrs. Peters by before Spring Break.
  2. Print out a copy of your poem choices and turn in to Mrs. Peters by the Wednesday before the slam.
  • We can only accommodate 15 slammers, so the sooner you submit your materials for approval, the better the chance that you will get a position in the slam.
  • Practice your poems often, so that on the day of the slam, you aren’t performing them for the first time.
