Spokane Poetry Slam
Spokane Poetry Slam is competitive performance poetry. Poets have three minutes to present their original work without costumes, props or musical accompaniment. (Nov. 17 will be held at 7 p.m. and poets are allowed to read poetry written by someone else who is living and are Spokane-affiliated and must present written permission from original poet). Audience judges chosen at random score the poem and the highest cumulative score after two rounds of poetry wins the $50 grand prize. This is loud and raucous, and audience participation is highly encouraged. Content is not censored. Held the third Monday of the month at 8 p.m.
