Poets will be slammin’ on Sunday, October 20th at 1:30 pm at the Villa Park Public Library Annex, 317 S. Ardmore Avenue.
Poet and poetry slam founder Marc Smith will perform and emcee a Chicago-style poetry slam, a competition among poets scored by three judges chosen at random from the crowd.
Poets may only read their own poems in the slam and should be prepared to read more than one poem during the competition. Prizes will be awarded.
Marc Smith began the Poetry Slam in Chicago in 1986 and still hosts every Sunday at the Green Mill Jazz Club. Smith has performed at the Smithsonian Institute, The Lincoln Center for Performing Arts and many other venues. He has been featured on CNN, 60 Minutes and National Public Radio.
