What is a Poetry Slam?
A Poetry Slam features original poetry performed in front of an audience. The spotlight is on the poetry and how it is delivered. Performances of original poetry in English and/or Spanish can be:
traditional and non-traditional poetry and verse
original songs/lyrics, rap, hip-hop
You may only attend during Mustang Morning, your scheduled lunch, or with a class.
It takes lots of hard work and creativity to write an original poem or song. It also takes courage and initiative to perform an original piece in front of your peers.
**Show respect for the audience and performers!**
