Poetry Slam Coming!

by Press Release-CCC | Mar 26, 2006
Poetry Slam Coming! Poetry plus performance plus pronouncement of champions will equal competitive recreation when the Camden County College Mental Elevations Book Club sponsors a poetry slam on April 7.

The event will be held in the first-floor cafeteria/community room of College Hall on the college’s Camden City Campus, which is located at Broadway and Cooper Street in Camden. It will run from 4:30 to 7 p.m.

Poetry slams take the traditional poetry reading to the extreme, providing a forum for poets to perform rather than just read and to compete rather than just entertain. Quality of content and quality of presentation both factor into the judging criteria, and winners typically are masters at both.

Another key difference between a slam and a reading is attendee involvement. Audience members are encouraged to be very vocal with their feelings about each performance and contribute toward the judging.

Attendance at and participation in the slam are both free and open to the public. Poets who would like to perform, however, must register with Chris Ingram, club president. Ingram can be reached via e-mail at mentalelevations2cc@yahoo.com.

For additional information about the event, contact club adviser Dr. Elisabeth Bass by telephone at (856) 227-7200, ext. 4360, or via e-mail at lbass@camdencc.edu.
