The Boston Poetry Slam has presented a free, cash-prize poetry slam in conjunction with the Attleboro Arts Museum annually since 2007. The 2013 slam will take place on Friday, April 26, with a pre-event workshop for local high school students that morning. As always, the event will be hosted by Simone Beaubien.
This year’s workshop leaders, Melissa Newman-Evans and Kevin Spak, will join the ranks of previous event workshoppers April Ranger, Sam Teitel, Mike McGee, Caroline Harvey, Harlym125, Megan Thoma, and Adam Stone. The slam event features short poetry sets from the workshop leaders, as well as cash prizes for the top scorers in slams for both youth (poets nineteen and under) and all ages. Past winners of the slam have included Ryk McIntyre, Artie Moffa, and Paulie Lipman.
More details for this year’s event are available from the Facebook event.
