The Retort United Slam Team is the annual squad that The Drunken Retort (Stella's Lounge) sends to National Events to represent our beautiful scene and put on for our community.
The Drunken Retort Poetry Slam, hosted by Rachel Gleason and KFG, is a competition where poets will be scored on a scale of 1-10 by 5 random judges. The top 3 finalists will be awarded points that will secure their place in our year end "Grand Slam". The Grand Slam will be a competition featuring our top 10 point holders for the season, and once the competition is over we will have the top 4 (or 5) artists that will make up our National Representatives.
Of course, there is not ONLY slam on the 2nd Monday of the month. We will also have an Open Mic that will operate on a first come, first to perform basis.
So come share just like you would any other Monday, and help us to send some dynamic local artists to some incredible national competitions.
Do you know any incredibly talented poets in West Michigan?
Well tell them to come SLAM every 2nd Monday at The Drunken Retort!
