Slam Poetry & Short Story Event – January 4, 2020

Cromwell Arts Alliance in partnership with Cromwell Belden Public Library will hold a live performance of “slam poetry” or “spoken word poetry” and short story. Slam Poetry is simply a term used to refer to poems that are performed. Slam Poetry or Spoken Word Poetry (or performance poetry) is simply poetry that's written to be performed. One must not judge a spoken word poem simply by reading it, because the performance is 50% of the experience.
