Hey ladies!! ....do you have what it takes to be a Woman of the World(WOW) representative? Or maybe you thought you would be that storm poet? Or you've never been to a poetry slam or participated in a slam, this is the time for you to dip your toes into the waters. 

Poets who live as women, you have unique opportunity to be a representative at the 2013 WOW competition in Austin, TX for the Respect Da Mic Poetry Slam in March, plus have your voice heard.

This is a poetry slam...and if you've never encountered slam, come let the inked words take you over! It's about the ink... it's about the poetry... It's about the love of poetry and it's only $7 to attend if you pay online one day prior to the event; otherwise it's $10 at the door/online. Adult content. Bring a friend or two or ten!
