Detroit Slam Info /Team Bios/ changes


Hello to everyone and committees I volunteered to serve on...

I was injured at my job... (head, neck, spine)...been recuperating...

Would someone send me an e-mail regarding the point person(s) in charge of putting the program together and updating the venues on the PSI site... other sites that this info should be posted? Last year, we sent several e-mails before the deadline to the PSI site and those in charge of putting the program together and the Detroit Team was not listed in the program, nor were the venue changes made. Also Kalimah Johnson, Slammaster of the Meetery Eatery has informed me that she sent a couple of e-mails to get the Detroit Slam Venues updated on the PSI site and the changes have not been made yet.

Detroit had its finals on May 14th at the HockeyTown Cafe.

From December- January: World Voice Cultural Arts Inc (a non-profit; Aurora Harris, CEO and Slammaster, sponsoring organization);  venue operators and poets in Detroit , created a Slam Committee for the purpose of organizing and training venues and poets on how to run a slam; so that Detroit could send a team to the nationals.  Detroit had 7 venues which covered the northwest, midtown, downtown and east side of metro detroit, working to get slam up and running ...

Feb-April:  Out of 4 registered and certified venues, 3 are up and running and will act as a group of venues to make one team... This year's host venue is Cammillian Cafe... Next year it may be the Meetery Eatery or Redd Apple Gallery...

The Key Club under SlamMaster Sparrow was Registered and Ceritfied, However, the Key Club closed sometime in April. Sparrow has moved to another venue.

Redd Apple Gallery: The slammaster left shortly after the venue was registered. Aurora stepped as interim Slammaster,  to train the venue and hosts to run slam. At this time, Chauntay Legacy Leanard has expressed interest in being the SlamMaster for that venue.

please contact aurora at 313 598-9440 or send e-mail to or contact the Slammasters through their e-mails and contact numbers provided
