Slamlandia

Thu, Sep 15, 2022 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm PDT
925 SW Washington Street Portland, OR 97205

FREE

Slamlandia is a poetry open mic and slam that meets every month. This mic provides a creative, fun, and welcoming space for all literary communities in Portland. We encourage poets new and old to come share their work. We strive towards a safer space for poets to read their own poetry, witness others, and participate in community.

This event takes place in-person. Proof of Covid-19 vaccine or a negative PCR test is required for admittance. Please see our Covid-19 guidelines for in-person events at Literary Arts.

Hosted by Julia Gaskill.
