A Poetry Slam is, at its simplest, a spoken word competition. It is a very democratic form of poetry. All someone needs a degree of humility and a whole lot of honesty. The Las Vegas Youth Poetry Slam will take place on Monday, August 17th, 6-9pm, at the Summerlin Library Theater. Competitors in the Las Vegas Youth Poetry Slam will be taking the stage to raise money for the English Department at Palo Verde High School and, even more importantly, to raise awareness of the arts in Summerlin and the surrounding communities.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
