The 2017 Irmo High School Poetry Slam featuring students in Mona Elleithee’s Poetry & Performance class, competing in written word poetry, poetry alive (performance of published poetry), and spoken word (performance of their own original work).
Other judges were Jeanette Arvay Beck and Monifa Lemons.
Want to push your writing to a new level? Want to learn more about craft and voice? Image and indirection. Honesty and lies, making the abstract concrete. Finding a voice, telling a story.
I’ll be leading a series of FREE writing workshops (every Tuesday evening in July between 6:30pm-8pm), culminating with a public poetry reading and open mic event at the Richland Library.
- Tuesday, July 7 — Bank of America Conference Room
- Tuesday, July 14 — Bank of America Conference Room
- Tuesday, July 21 — Bank of America Conference Room
- Tuesday, July 28 — Film & Sound
Poetry Reading and Open Mic
Share what you’ve created or honed during the workshop, and listen to other talented community members perform their verse.
Don’t miss your chance to work with me and snag one of these high-demand spots!
Registration is required, and space is limited. Register online by visiting the event listings on the Richland Library website. You must register for each session separately, with the exception of the final Poetry Reading and Open Mic. For that event, first dibs to read/perform will be given to those who have participated in the preceeding workshops, and others can sign up in person prior to the event start.
