Verselandia! 2014 at Portland Center Stage

Tue, Apr 29, 2014 from 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
128 NW 11th Ave Portland, OR 97209

Verselandia 2014! is the third annual high school poetry slam presented by Literary Arts. It is the Grand Slam for the winners from individual school slams hosted by PPS high school library media specialists. The top two slam poets from Benson, Cleveland, Franklin, Grant, Jefferson, Lincoln, Metropolitan Learning Center, Madison, Roosevelt, and Wilson will be competing for five great prizes. Verselandia! has the same rules as national poetry slams: students’ poetry must be original work, each performance cannot exceed three minutes, and poets cannot use any props, costumes, or music. Verselandia judges use a scale of one to ten, rating both the writing and the performance.
