Yahfu,

I edited your post above. I changed the Women of the World Poetry Slam information to reflect changes that have been made in the last few days. It is now going to be held in Detroit and on the weekend of March 12-15. Without grant support we had sort of counted on we determined it would be far easier to promote this in the Detroit market. The date change was necessary because NCAA Basketball sweet sixteen was being held in Detroit on the other date and we couldn't find a hotel room available in the city.
