Poetry Slam Workshop: Thursday, June 28, at 6:30 pm


A Poetry Slam workshop and a mock Poetry Slam featuring youth poet and performer Jeanicia Smith will be held on Thursday, June 28, at 6:30 p.m.

If you would like to learn more about the art of Poetry Slam to compete in or support a future Poetry team, please join us.

For the first time, Pittsfield is working to create a Poetry Slam team to compete nationally in 2013. Former Pittsfield resident, Hartford Poetry Slam team artist, and found of Springfield (Mass.) Poetry Slam team Maurice “Soulfighter” Taylor will help make this possible. When the team is assembled, fundraising will begin. The goal is to compete with Poetry Slam teams throughout Massachusetts and beyond, as well as host Slams in our city. Please consider supporting these efforts to put Pittsfield on the map in Slam Poetry and write a new literary and cultural chapter in the life of our city.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Berkshire Athenaeum.
