Peoples, just wanted to give a heads up. We are holding the 2nd annual North Carolina Poetry Grand Slam in Greensboro, NC on Saturday July 17, 2004! The event is featuring 20 poets battling for a prize of $500, and is hosted by Poet Monte Smith with music for the evening provided by the legendary DJ Soundmachine.

This event is not your typical poetry slam. It is NOT a PSI event so be sure to read up on the rules before entering (rules can be found at the official site: www.33third.com/nclsam). For example the judging is done by a panel of judges representing the community, and all poets MUST have their material memorized.

Last year for the inaugural event we ended up turning away poets and people trying to watch the event due to over capacity crowd. We had an extremely heated battle throughout the night last year with Winston-Salem native and Gulf War veteran H20 taking the title. H20 will be back to defend his title this year.

If you feel you are up to the challenge, please visit the official site at: www.33third.com/ncslam for more information. All questions regarding the event should be emailed to: ncslam@33third.com.

The event is free to attend (watch) and $10 to enter as a poet, paid the DAY OF the event. All proceeds from the poet entry fee are donated to a grassroots charity. This is purely for poets to show their talent to audiences familiar and unfamiliar with spoken word. There is pre-registration available as well as registration the day of. Please visit the site (www.33third.com/ncslam) for more information regarding both registration methods.

Peace and hope to see you there.
