A Word on our (gentle) Poetry Slams...
Slam is a gentle Slam. At some Poetry Slams in city bars and on college

the evening of her 90th birthday at one of our Slams! The rest fall in
between giving us a rich variety of perspectives of the human condition.
Audience members vote by filling out ballots with the names of
their three most favorite poems or poets (we print up programs listing
our poets so you can keep track of who's who). The ballots are dropped
into a ballot box at the end of the evening; the votes are tallied up
usually by the following day.
