PLU Slam Poetry
Put your words to the test and show the world what you’ve got. Hosted every six weeks by slam champion Winona Linn, PLU Slam challenges performers of all types to engage in competitive performance with their surrounding creative community. Scores between 1 and 10 are given by five randomly chosen judges from the audience in three rounds of verbal combat. In the end, there will be only one performer left standing, hereafter ordained PLU Slam Champ – at least until the next competition!
Held on Thursdays at Culture Rapide, 103 rue Julian Lacroix, 75020 – métro Belleville.
Check the Community Calendar for the next evening!
