Wise Writes invites you to participate in a poetry slam Oct. 20 at 1 p.m. in the Slemp Student Center atrium to celebrate the National Day on Writing http://www.ncte.org/dayonwriting.
At a poetry slam, writers have two minutes to read or perform one original piece. Judges Neva Bryan and Jonathan Crimmins will score writers. This is a great way for writers to get feedback and bring attention to their works in progress.
It will be open mike so writers can join on the day or contact Emily Dotson (ead2y@uvawise) to reserve a spot as a poet/reader in advance. Contact Dotson for more information.
