"One of the most vital and energetic movements in poetry during the 1990s, slam has revitalized interest in poetry in performance. . . . A slam itself is simply a poetry competition in which poets perform original work alone or in teams before an audience, which serves as judge. The work is judged as much on the manner and enthusiasm of its performance as its content or style, and many slam poems are not intended to be read silently from the page."
- A Brief Guide to Slam Poetry at Poets.org

The Round Rock Public Library presents a Teen Poetry Slam from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 29. Teens can share their own poetry or just enjoy listening.  Bring along bean bags, cushions or other cool seating.  The Library will provide a suitably ambient atmosphere.
