It's that time of the year again. Over 400 poets decend on an unsuspecting city for a week of some of the most dynamic and relevant poetry around. Sure, it's a competition, but you won't be able to tell that at 3am when groups of people from all over the nation (and France) are still on street corners in tight circles letting their poems rip from their mouths. It's the National Poetry Slam 2005. If you are anywhere close, there is no reason to miss this.
Oh, and my Team NORAZ 2005 will be competing. Come see us perform brand-spankin' new group poems in front of rabid audiences. It's all happening. I'll be posting updates soon...
