From 6 PM to 7 PM, they’ll be leading a WRITING WORKSHOP. Either bring 8-10 copies of one of your poems that you want workshopped, or come with an open mind and ready to write. It’ll be a good experience no matter what. See more about the workshop below!
From 7 to 9 PM, we’ll have Thomas and Jelly do a set of awesome poetry and then we will have a BOX OF DOOM. BOX OF DOOM works like this: we have scoured the earth for the worst poems, lyrics, and yelp reviews we can locate; anyone DARING ENOUGH can pull a random poem/etc. from the BOX OF DOOM — you will then have 1-3 minutes to mentally steel yourself before performing this work before your peers/strangers. It should be fun. You should come.
$0 at the cover, but bring money so you can buy merch from our features.
We will be looking at the poem” dinosauria, we” by Charles Bukowski. Bukowski is not a slam poet in any sense of the word but we are going to talk about how it is a slam poem and what we can learn from it. We will also be work shopping your poems. So please bring in 6-8 copies of a poem you would like workshopped.
