Poetry Slam is back! Join ArtHaus on Friday, April 21, for the next installment of this beloved Decorah activity. Sponsored by Dragonfly Books, this spring's Poetry Slam will feature poets and partners David Wright and Marci Rae Johnson and will be emceed by local Decorah celebrities.
Poetry Slams have been a huge hit in the Decorah community. All are welcome to participate. You can choose to share an original 3-minute-long composition in a non-competitive atmosphere during the Original Voices or in the Slam if you are feeling more competitive. The Slam consists of performing your work, preferably by memory, to see how you rank on the Applause-O-Meter. There will be prizes offered for those whose performances are memorable and highly ranked!
The Poetry Slam will be held at Elks Lodge. Tickets are $5 ($3 for students). There will be a bar open to those 21 and over, but please bring cash as it is a cash-only bar. Due to the nature of some works, this event is recommended to those 16 and over.
If you would like to perform during the Poetry Slam, please call ArtHaus at 563-382-5440 or sign up online. There are limited slots, so please do so ahead of time!
This event is very popular and is sure to sell out fast! It is definitely an even you don't want to miss it, so come early to make sure you have a seat. The Poetry Slam will start at 8:00 with the Open Voices; doors will open at 7:30. We hope to see you there!
