Calling All Poets

The Boulder JCC will be hosting a Poetry Slam on Wednesday, February 19 at 6:30 pm in HaSifria: The Library at the Boulder JCC. Snacks and drinks will be served. A poetry slam is a spoken word audience participation program, where anyone with an original poem, song lyrics, haiku, or limerick can present and be judged by a panel of audience members.  

Everyone is invited to present, for a maximum of three minutes with audience members as judges. We are seeking a broad range of voices, styles, cultural traditions, and approaches to writing and performance. Your work must be yours, but it can be published. The Poetry Slam is a modern invention meant to break with the past image of poetry as an elitist or rigid art form. The poetry slam will be hosted by Jonathan Montgomery. Montgomery is editor-in-chief of Boulder Poetry Tribe. An MFA graduate from Naropa’s Jack Kerouac School in 2005, he currently works as an English professor at Front Range Community College.
