Poetry Slam is for anyone who wants to try their hand at creating a poem. No poetry experience required. All aspiring poets will be given the same topic 20 minutes before the start at 7 pm. They have that 20 minutes to slam out an original poem. A random draw decides on the performance order. Email Box.Office @gplt.ca to enter as a poet or to get your name into the draws for door prizes.
