Poetry Slam
April is National Poetry Month.  What better way to end it than with a new event at the Carnegie Carnegie.  A Poetry Slam!  What is that?  The true definition is a competition using elimination rounds for the reading or performance of poetry.  So what are we asking?  We want you to bring in favorite poem(s) or even better write one or two yourself to share at this open mic night.  We will have a couple of rounds without elimination for each poet, so be sure to bring more than one poem with you.  You don’t have to memorize them.  Just read with some passion is all we ask.  We will be down in our Studio space allowing you the stage to speak what’s on your mind in a judgement free zone.  Our only request is no Hate Speech, as we want this to be a positive experience for all.  No adults will be allowed (Except for ACFL&MH Staff).

Open to all teens.  Thursday April 25 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the Studio.
