A sampler of April’s West Side Poetry Slam, presented as a hybrid event at WestWords and via Zoom.

Featuring Alasdair Carter.

Presented by WestWords and West Side Poetry Slam, West Side Poetry Slam is a monthly open mic night where you can sign up on the night and perform/read an original piece of writing to open minds, hearts, and arms. Random audience members score just for the fun of it and you could win a support feature slot at the next slam. Other performance art forms are also welcome. Anything can be poetry.

“Please note that the following slam poetry presentation contains mature themes intended for an adult audience. Parental guidance is advised.”
