Sixteen slam poets will face off November 23rd when the D.N.S.T.P. Chapter of A.A.C. presents Georgia College’s first ever 24 hour Slam. The event spans three locations and features poetry, live music, and live art. Slam poetry is the competitive art of spoken word which pits teams of poets against each other in a poetic boxing match of epic proportions.
Monica Prince, Org Director of the D.N.S.T.P. Chapter of A.A.C. says, “The event transforms ordinary people into slam poets overnight. This is awesome!”
The 24 Hour Slam borrows inspiration from Georgia College’s 24 hour plays where participants create and produce plays in 24 hours. Paul Ayo, Director of A.A.C. adds, “This slam will do the same. We’ll write, create, and perform in a 24 hour time period.” The slam begins at 8pm November, 23 in Max Noah Recital Hall. Slam Masters, poets, artists, and musicians begin preparation for the slam Friday, November, 22 at 8pm.
Non-experienced and experienced artists, writers, and poetry enthusiasts are welcome to pre-register for the event while slots last. To pre-register, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line, “I want to slam”.
