Slam Poetry is the competitive art of performance poetry. It puts a dual emphasis on writing and performance, encouraging poets to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it.
McNair’s Slam Poetry Club is preparing to participate in an upcoming Van Slam Event on Youth Night. Mini school students, Jordan and Caron, have also organized a slam poetry writing workshop with a winning slam poet which will be taking place at the beginning of November.
After school today, Slam Poetry Club members created their bulletin board which will eventually be judged as part of McNair’s annual bulletin board competition.
The Slam Poetry Club meets weekly on Thursdays from 3:00pm – 4:30pm in Ms. Bone’s room (137). New members welcome!
