Suffern Slam Society holds a poetry slam the first Saturday of every month at Casa del Sol in Nyack, NY from 630 PM to 9 PM. A poetry slam is a performance poetry competition judged by arbitrarily-selected audience members. Where traditional poetry readings are about supporting the poet, poetry slams focus on the interaction between audience and poet. Strong writing and strong delivery are both important. Whether you want to come out and participate by performing or by spectating, you are welcome. Our slam has been in operation since December 2011.
We also host a poetry open mic the third Saturday of every month at the Suffern Village Hall in Suffern, NY. That series has been taking place at various venues since March of 2011.
