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. 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. Age 21 and older. Content is not censored, discretion is advised. Held the third Monday of the month at 8 p.m.
