Lake Effect Poetry is competing at the Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam in Detroit, MI on June 13 and 14. The first two positions on the team will be filled by our current indie champs AKeemjamal Rollins and Siaara Freeman. The remaining two spots will be determined by way of poetic slam combat at April's Stardust Poetry show. This will be a one-round slam with a three-minute rule in effect, so bring out your BEST poem. Poets competing for a spot on this team must be at least 18 years of age by June 13th and able to commit to being at the two-day event. (Transportation / car-pools will be worked out once the team roster is finalized: you do not have to find your own way there.) The two highest-scoring poets will win a place on the 2014 Lake Effect Poetry slam team! There will be an open-mic before the slam begins.
