Painted Bride Quarterly Presents: Slam, Bam, Thank You, Ma’am
Mar 3, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Got some skills writing under pressure? Think you’ve got your teeth sunk into the mainline vein of improvised poetics, like some vampire bat alighting on the haunches of an unsuspecting muse to feed on her oozing, mythical gore? Are you still reading this?
Then consider attending and competing in Slam, Bam, Thank You, Ma’am, an event produced by Painted Bride Quarterly, one of the country’s longest continually running independent literary magazines. The Slam Bam will feature drinking, a reading by Michael H. Broder, and a first draft skills challenge, in which willing attendees will respond to prompts in nifty little blue books (remember those from high school?). The winners, after being selected from the world’s first fully automated poetics-analyzing computer scanner, will have their work read aloud and receive prizes of inestimable value.
