Vanessa Shields is a mother, writer, lover, ballet dancer, swimmer…and so much more! She loves to write poetry, and has been published in that form primarily, but she also blogs writes plays, novels, screenplays, and songs. She mentors, guest speaks and teaches creative writing, and does Poetry On Demand on-the-spot poetry-writing that helps make poetry fun and accessible for all. As creator and host of Mouth Piece Storytelling, a storytelling competition, Shields is able to share her love of storytelling with her community.

Sign up for the slam begins at 7:30pm, and ends at 7:45pm. Show starts at 8 pm.

Regular slam rules apply. As always this slam will be featuring two rounds of three-minute poems. All work must be original. There are 12 spots to sign up for the slam, if more than 12 poets sign up a random draw will be held.

An open mic portion will also be available for anyone who wants to share their poems but not compete in the slam.

Cash prizes for top poets available to be won.

Admission is $5 at the door. This helps cover the winning cash for poets and the cost of bringing in talented paid features.
