Urbana Poetry Slam
Tuesdays at the Bowery Poetry Club
"NYC-Urbana hosts weekly poetry slams at the Bowery Poetry Club. We're a quirky and eccentric series, and even though we've featured some of the biggest names in poetry--Billy Collins, Patricia Smith, Galway Kinnell, Saul Williams, and almost every national slam champion--we remain a warm and welcoming venue for all kinds of poetic voices: political, confessional, musical, and spiritual. The series has actually won the national poetry slam championship a record THREE TIMES (1997, 2000, 2002).
Urbana starts at 7pm. Bowery Arts and Science hosts the 'WordShop' with the featured poet from the Poetry Slam giving a talk of the craft of poetry at 6:30. $7 for the Slam, 'WordShop: is free and partially funded by New York State Council on the Arts and New York City Department of Culture."
