Poetry SLAM! Series returns to Bemidji
The series starts Oct. 20 at Fozzie's Smokin Bar-B-Q.
After a two-year break, the Watermark Art Center is reviving the Poetry SLAM! Series, starting Thursday, Oct. 20.
SLAM! Poets are encouraged to pre-register. There is no fee to participate or watch.
Poets should prepare three original poems, each under three minutes reading time. Judges, selected from the audience, score each reading on a scale of 1 to 10. Poets with the highest scores move forward to a second, then third round. The top three in the final round win cash prizes of $100, $50 and $25.
The SLAM! Will be held at Fozzie’s Smokin Bar-B-Q in Bemidji. Sign-in begins at 6:30 p.m. with the performance at 7 p.m.
Performers may pre-register by calling Watermark at 218-444-7570 or emailing Leah at email@example.com. Same-day registration at the venue is available based on space.
