This world is but a canvas to our imagination.

Poetry Slam, features
Are you a poet? We think you could be/should be. Join us for the 16th Annual Poetry Slam (Saturday, Sept. 9 beginning at 2 pm in the Park Place Restaurant adjacent to festival grounds) featuring area poets and the multi-talented Shanelle Gabriel coming to us from New York.
The slam will once again bring competitive performance poetry to Norwich where, organizer Rich Bernstein tells us, poets perform their original work without props, costumes, or music and are then judged by members of the audience on a scale of 0-10. We love that this has been called the “Olympic sport of the soul.”
Poets will be competing for $300 in cash prizes. Poets are encouraged to preregister for the slam by calling Rich at 607-244-9739. This year’s slam is limited to the first 16 poets who register.

The Park Place Restaurant is audience friendly. IDs are required to purchase alcoholic beverages. Children under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult, as mature language may be used.
