Slam Poetry Contest

Ellen Hopkins is coming to Scriber!

Tuesday, January 24th at 1PM

To celebrate, SLH Library is hosting a Slam Poetry Writing Contest. The top 3 winners will receive a signed copy of one of Ellen Hopkins’ newest books! We will present the winning poems to Ms. Hopkins as a thank you gift.

How to Write a Winning Slam Poem:

  • Write an original poem based on your own experience.
  • It can be fictional, but it should feel true.  
  • Keep your poem one page or less.
  • Choose to rhyme or go free verse, but don’t skimp on the rhythm.
  • Ask a friend, teacher, guardian, or coach to read it over before you submit it.

Turn in your poems to the SLH Library Friday, January 13th at 2:15 pm.
