Savannah Blue Arts & Outreach presents Bayou City Poetry Slam Festival
Over 40 poets from across the region and nation will compete for cash prizes in a display of poetic virtuosity. Poetry slam is competitive performance poetry. Since the 1980s poetry slam has grown as the premier performance poetry genre involving poets performing their original work before judges for Olympic style scores. The very best “slam poets” skillfully emphasize their skill with poetic craft, and then deliver their work with dramatic performances that often leave audiences mesmerized.
