Poetry Slam Dunk
On March 5, the Duluth Poetry Chapter, working with Caddy Shack Indoor Golf & Pub, hosted a Poetry Slam Dunk, a play on the usual open-mic format of a poetry slam. Poetry slams are typically held in bars, with the alcohol making the reading of poems less intimidating and the listening more relaxed, too.
During March Madness, these Duluth poets celebrated poetry as though it were a sporting event. It was a night of silliness such as words written on bellies, pun-filled cheers, poetry snaps and sneers, “#1 poet laureate” foam fingers and words that’ll keep your heart pounding!
