Last night at the Poets’ Asylum, we welcomed poets from all over the place – Massachusetts, New Hampshire — that’s like, 1/3 of New England! And while some of them hit the awesome Open Mic, hosted by the lovely and talented Liz Heath, some of them competed in the Asylums’ first Big Money Slam! At the end of two epic rounds, Sam Teitel took first place, walking out the door with $100 and, more importantly, some serious accolades. Thanks to everyone who came out – we loved loved loved seeing you.
Next week, we welcome Worcester’s own 2011 Youth Slam Team as they battle area educators – Back to School, Baby! There’s gonna be poetry! And a bake-off! And poetry! And if you’ve been dying to dust off that first day-of-school outfit (we know Sarah has), bring that, too! And your poetry!
