Poetry Slam 2014

Sign up to perform or just come to enjoy an evening of performance poetry at Lone Star College-CyFair’s 2014 Poetry Slam set April 1.

“Be prepared for a rowdy atmosphere where performers can speak their mind as we celebrate the freedom of expression with our annual Poetry Slam,” said Carolina Ruiz, professor of English. “In celebration of National Poetry Month, this annual event is the opportunity to express, speak, declare and showcase your original work with a chance to win prizes.”

Community and college slam poets will “bring their ‘A’ game and leave the fluff at home” as they compete and entertain audiences with poems in styles that typically range from vibrant, hip hop style to serene rhythm and rhyme.

This event, intended for mature audiences as some poems may contain adult material, is set for 7 p.m. Thursday, April 1 in the Main Stage Theatre at 9191 Barker Cypress.

To register as a performer or for information, contact Ruiz at Carolina.Ruiz@LoneStar.edu or 281.290.3465.
