Time to Run Amok!


It’s true. The people have spoken. The poets have been chosen. Let the poetry run Amok!

The 2012 slam team was selected at our April 27 slam. And while we’re not quite ready to introduce them yet, we can promise you, it’s an excellent crew of poets. They’ll be doing poems all over town this summer, and you can always check this site to find out what they’re up to. All the dates will appear on the calendar.

First up, you can find the team on Ustream (and this website) later this month, broadcasting the 2nd Annual 24 Hour Poetry Reading. That’s right, 24 hours of poetry delivered directly to your face for absolutely free! Does that seem absurd? Do you feel guilty about indulging in 24 hours of free poetry? Well, we’ll also have a nice little “donation” button so that you can relieve your guilt. All the money we raise during the 24 hour slam will support the team’s trip to the National Poetry Slam in Charlotte at the end of the summer. Stay tuned, and don’t miss the poetry that will rock your summer!

Friends, we apologize, but because of venue issues, we aren’t able to host tonight’s slam. We encourage you to check out our feature, Moody Black, and we’ll keep you posted on next month’s slam. We are looking for a new venue home we welcome your suggestions.

New Site


Elephant Toy

A new Art Amok Slam website is forthcoming. Coming soon! Just like your prom night.

I’ve moved to WordPress for some simple content management. Hopefully this will allow us to more easily update.

In the meantime, please keep up with us at ourĀ Facebook page. PS… you can help us out by clicking the donate button below. We love people who donate.
