It's the 1st Annual 3-Part Slam Series, hosted by the Starving Artist Project. There will be three different slams held at three different venues over three days. Each slam has a different theme, and will be open to poets of all ages. Each competitor WILL be required to pay a $10 entrance fee for each slam they compete in. This money will go into a pot and the top poet will win a percentage of this pot. Each slam will be three rounds and scores will not be cumulative.

This looks to be pretty good - I'd even consider coming out of retirement to compete in the minute slam.

If I have one general complaint re: Slams (and spoken word) nowadays, it's that folks keep on talking way after they have anything left to say.

Unfortunately I will be on plane when this event begins.
