Slam big and win big at the second annual Poetry Slam hosted by the English Department.

A first prize of $200 will go to the winner of this dazzling, high-energy slam — second and third place prizes will also be awarded — for sharing original work (judged by students, alumni, faculty and staff). Last year’s slam was a standing-room-only success; preregistration for entrance into the contest is required. To participate in the slam, submit a print and video version of no more than five minutes of original poetry to by September 17. Entries will be judged on their poetic effects, compelling content and on video performance.

All UMBC students and alumni are eligible.
