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.
