Our March slam will be at Casa del Sol in Nyack. As per usual, we will have:
--a short open mic [5 people max]
--a poetry slam limited to 8 folk; the slam'll be 3 rounds
--lots and lots of fun
--a $5 cover
--a sweet t-shirt & $10 for the winner
--a wonderful group of humans

Sign-ups and doors open at 6:30 PM; poems start at 7.

Any questions? Ask!

RULES: you get 3 minutes to do 1 original piece, sans costumes, musical accompaniment, props, animals, etc. Anyone can sign up to perform; if more than 8 poets sign up, we'll choose 8 of the signees at random. Judges will be chosen from the audience. Top scoring poets advance to the second round and the third round. Different pieces needed for each round so bring three poems!
