Slam Poetry is a club dedicated to the art of spoken word poetry.
Whether our members draw inspiration from rap and hip hop, traditional poetry or theater, we all write, study and perform poetry that is crafted to be performed orally.
In addition to weekly poetry workshops, we facilitate monthly open mic nights in Café La Verna, visits from professional slam poets and even a “poetry slam” each semester where SBU poets compete against one another in an organized competition.
