For the first time EVER, Maspeth High School will be hosting a Poetry Slam! A poetry slam is an exciting competitive event in which poets of all levels perform their original work on stage. You may perform original poetry, selections from personal memoirs, personal narratives, your own song and/or rap lyrics. The audience will judge who wins depending on who gets the loudest applause! The winner will get their winning poem published in the Maspeth Messenger, and ultimate bragging rights.
It is going to be an extremely exciting and unique night. The English Department encourages you to perform something you are proud of, or just come to support your talented peers. It will be a great opportunity to make our school community stronger and get to know your classmates a little better!
The Poetry Slam will be held in the cafeteria after school at 4 PM on April 3rd.
Admission is FREE and there will be lots of yummy food, snacks, and refreshments!
Students who would like to participate should reach out to their English teachers to sign up for the event.
Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing your amazing pieces of writing,
Your English teachers
