Slam Poetry Competition Pictures

Thank you to everyone who made the Slam Poetry Competition a rousing success! The 10 poets inspired, moved, and awed an audience of over 260 people. Below are a few photos from the event. If you have any photos you would like to share, please email them to me at kmacbride@cityofmillvalley.org. Poems from the evening can be found here (I will add more poems as I receive them). Video of the event will be posted when it becomes available.
