Attend the Slam Poetry Competition on March 4th, 2016

Performance: Fri 3/4, 7 PM

Do you love the spoken word? Do you want to participate in one of Mill Valley’s most celebrated maxine-and-audience-1024x767evenings? Register to compete in the Library’s 5th Annual Teen Slam Poetry Competition!

On March 4th an audience of over 200 will fill the Mill Valley Library to hear 10 high school students (are you one of them?) perform original works of poetry. Three judges will determine who moves on to the championship round and, ultimately, win the competition. The acclaimed poet Jazz Hudson will grace us with her talent and wisdom as our emcee for the evening. Participants MUST register and communicate with Katie prior to the event on March 4th at 7 PM.

What is Slam?

A slam itself is simply a poetry competition in which poets perform original work before an audience and judges (in our case three judges). The work is judged as much on the manner and enthusiasm of its performance as its content or style, and many slam poems are not intended to be read silently from the page.
