Hello Poets (and aspiring poets alike),
Slam poetry is an interesting aspect of poetry. It can be a little scary, too. Slam poetry incorporates components such as performance, writing, audience participation, and of course, competition. It’s a little in your face so to say, and I’ve competed in these before so I know how nerve wrecking it can be. I’ve mostly coached high school students, but these skills are not age restricted. Anyone can learn. These skills will also help you with other performance, not just poetry. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
