HUSH Magazine: Making a case for slam poetry

Check out this article on slam poetry by HUSH Magazine:

Slam Poetry. Performance Poetry. Spoken Word.  Upon hearing these words, you might think of the following:

  1. A room full of solemn, mime-like creatures dressed in black berets and turtlenecks.
  2. Rhythmic snapping in time with the slow drone of a poet who has been talking for the last twenty minutes, about…. something…
  3. The memory of one of your college friends dragging you to a poetry reading, and you fell asleep.

If you are nodding agreeably to yourself, you are culturally required to read this.
