Today’s Phoenix Poetry Slam at Lawn Gnome Publishing is the result of years of seeking talented new voices and promoting strong literary events.
10 poets in Phoenix will be competing for a $50 cash prize! Slam begins at 8pm. The slam will be hosted by Aaron Hopkins-Johnson.
Want to compete? Send an email to email@example.com with 'POETRY SLAM' in the subject line. We will send you an invoice for the $10 registration fee.
