It’s that time! Poets who have qualified over the last three months will be competing in a no-holds-barred poetry competition for a spot in the finals next April! They’ll be bringing their best work, so it’s sure to be a night to remember. We’ll also have our usual open mic, and a special feature from our own hometown poetry hero, Champagne Ryder, Jr.!
