Beginner's Slam

"What's a slam?", you say? A slam is a poetry competition in which poets perform an original piece and get then get scored by judges that are randomly picked from the audience.


  • Location: Mosher 1
  • Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Sponsor: Student Life

 Scores are added up from different rounds and the audience is encouraged to participate by showing rowdy support for the poets. Featuring at the event will be Michael Lee, the 2011 “Best Individual Poet” of Collegiate Nationals (CUPSI); and Sam Cook, the young coach of the University of Minnesota College Slam Team.
