Event: Rouge Poetry Slam Competitions (weekly)

Where: Rouge Lounge, Edmonton, Alberta
When: Tuesday evenings at 9 pm

A poetry slam is the competitive art of performance poetry. It puts a dual emphasis on writing and performance, encouraging poets to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it. Anyone who has original works of poetry is invited to join on a first come first serve basis. Poets are to have 3 poems prepared; each poem should be no more than 3 minutes long. Sign up to slam up to one hour before it begins. Only 6 poets will slam a night. During the summer, the competition gets harder. Can you last?
