Poetry Slam Tonight at Poethouse Art

The Bend Poetry Slam takes place at Poethouse Art in Bend, Oregon tonight.

Posted By on Thu, Feb 24, 2011 at 11:04 PM

If you've never been to a poetry slam at the Poethouse, tonight may be the perfect opportunity. The Bend Poetry Slam is the product of former slams at Townsend's Tea House and Silver Moon Brewery, combining together into one super powered, all ages slam.

Don't know what a poetry slam is? Competitors participate in three rounds, presenting poems in less than three minutes. Audience members vote for the best slam poetry piece and at the end of the night a winner emerges. Both competitors and audience members win though, as they get to hear some creative, original pieces by local poets.

 

If you aren't quite brave enough to throw down with the best of them, the event features an open mic prior to the slam. The slam winner is rewarded with a cash prize. This month features Erin, the host of Portland's Poetry Slam. 

Admission is $5, students at $3, and competitors get in free.

Tonight from 8pm-11pm.

Poethouse Art, 55 NW Minnesota Ave (Above the Wine Shop).
