Verselandia! East Side Slam – 2020
Literary Arts’ Youth Programs presents the second annual Verselandia! East Side Slam. Cheer on high school students in the community as they perform original poetry in front of a panel of judges. Students from participating East Multnomah County high schools will be competing at this event including David Douglas High School, Gresham High School, Open School East, and Parkrose High School.
Following the same rules as national poetry slams, students must perform original work without props, costumes, or music in front of a panel of judges and a live audience. Using a scale of one to ten, the judges will rate both the performance and the writing of each student.
Please note that high school students may use adult language and explore adult themes.
This event is free and open to the public. Please share with your community and join us in support of youth poets!
