Sherman to Host Spine Tingling Poetry Slam

The hottest upstate poets and wannbes will join Sherman students at the college’s first-ever Spine Tingling Poetry Slam on Saturday, February 26, at 7:30 p.m. Proceeds from the slam will benefit Sherman College’s Chiropractic Student Government. Cover charge of $10 per person includes a t-shirt and a food coupon. Door prizes will be awarded, and food and beverages will be available. Kimberly Simms of Wits End Poetry and Greenville Slammaster will host the event.

A poetry slam is, simply put, the competitive art of performance poetry as seen on television and in coffee houses across the nation. A slam puts a dual emphasis on writing and performance, which encourages poets to focus on what they are saying and how they are saying it. Members of the audience and designated judges will evaluate poets for their three-minute, original constructions, without the use of props, costumes or musical instruments. The numerical scores the poets receive from the judges will be tallied, and the top three poets will be awarded cash prizes ($200, $100, $50).

Go to www.sherman.edu/poetryslam for registration, directions and other details.

For more information, e-mail Anje Hawkins, Director of Development at Sherman College, or call 864-578-8770 or 800-849-8771, ext. 1206.
