Local poet IQ sent me the following information about a poetry slam to be held tonight in Cooper-Young:
At Last IT is Here!!
7pm tonight @ Galloway in Cooper Young, 1015 S. Cooper!!!
Tonight the Galloway stage welcomes the cream of the crop from Memphis poetry slammers in the last ten years to Galloway in Cooper Young for a live recording and one great cause. 2000 Southern Fried Southeastern Slam Grand Champion, Adam White (3 time regionals team member & NPS 2000) Iasia (two-time regionals) IQ (NPS ’99-2000, ’02 & 5-time Southern Fried Regionals) and more will come together to raise money for two great schools keeping creative writing and art alive in Memphis, TN.
Continuing to support the writing community at large, The Trolleyline Poetry Slam is giving part of the proceeds from tonight’s slam to benefit The Scribbler, the literary and visual art journal of White Station High, and the recently established Central High School English Honors Society.
The special guest features for tonight’s slam are Jerri & Kirk Hardesty, legendary SlamMasters of Montevallo, AL and publishers of New Dawn Unlimited Press.
In addition to a great slam, a fantastic concert by RUSTY LEMON is on tap tonight too.
