How do poems from monarchies fare against poems by the
oppressed? Can royal stanzas stand up to the power of the
people? Will the crown be plow-shared into submission by
her former subjects? Find out April 9th, at Smart Gals 6th
annual Dead Poets Slam, when a team of anonymously performed,
deceased, monarchial poets face off against poetic minions
of colonized countries.
Hosted by Christine Louise Berry (Smart Gals), and featuring
Noël Alumit, Daniel Bess, Jerrod Cardwell, T.K. Carr,
Kathleen Coyne, Juli Crockett, Imani Tolliver, Steve Tom,
and Lori Yeghiayan. Our esteemed judges will include writer
and poetry professor Chris Davidson, playwright Katy Hickman,
and well-read physicist Clifford Johnson. The behind-the-scenes
team includes poetry seekers Tori Patterson and Laura Louden,
who is also a baker of delicious things for the slam.
Tea and comestibles shall be served.
