National Poetry Slam 2008

Poets and spoken word performers from all over the United States are getting ready for the National Poetry Slam this August. Among them, Baltimore's own slam poetry team, from the Slamicide poetry slam. This year's team will be coaxed toward victory by SlamMaster Chris August, whose slam poem appears in the latest issue of Infinity's Kitchen, by the way. If you can't make it to the National Poetry Slam, then check out a slam in your town. In our town, Baltimore, the slam is in a new night this year, in a new location. Cheer them on!
