Poetry Slam

Overview

Registration Deadline: Thursday, April 18
Event: Thursday, April 25; 6:30 PM

In partnership with youth-mentoring organization, That’s My Child, spoken word poets are invited to register to participate in the Museum’s first open poetry slam—with cash prizes up to $1000. Poets ages 12–18 will perform onstage following National Poetry Slam rules. Each participant’s submission poem, which will be performed in the first round, must be inspired by a work in the Museum’s collection (see works below). Participants should be prepared to perform three additional pieces should they advance in the competition.

Montgomery’s Jonathon “jpdapoet” Peterson will serve as MC for the evening. Some material may not be suitable for all audiences. Audience discretion is advised.
