It’s the last days of National Women’s Month, folks, but this week Justice Ameer gave us plenty to think about and poem upon for the next eleven months of the year. Yes, the month is too short and thirty minutes is not enough time to hear all from Justice that you want, but if you didn’t get xyr book last night, you might get a chance to hear xem the next time you visit the Providence Poetry Slam on a Thursday night. Our slam following Justice’s fire feature was full of hot competition: finals came down to local sometime slammer Max Ureña and new arrival Terah Ehigiator, with Max taking the $10 prize but both poets qualifying for Prelims next week.
Next week: yes, yes, yes, it is that time already/at last! April 3 will mark the first night of our Team Selection Slams. A blistering list of qualified poets has been invited to slam off next week in two rounds totaling four minutes, with the top poets advancing to Semi-Finals at the end of the month. As always, we’ll be looking for judges: sign up to put up numbers in advance and you can earn free admission to the $5 show.
