Villanova Poetry Slam

For questions about the event, contact English major Alex Forgione (aforgion@villanova.edu).  Says Alex, "We hope this event will help raise an interest in poetry on our campus and introduce students to an impactful and creative art form! Students have the opportunity to perform their slam poem for the chance to win up to $200. Neil Hilborn, a renowned poet among the slam poetry community, will be emceeing and performing (he's best known for his poem "OCD"). Sign ups for the slam can be done online at http://bit.do/VillanovaPoetrySlam or on the first day of the slam at 7:00 pm. We will also raffle off prizes, including two tickets to see the Nobody Safe Tour with Migos and Future, as well as two tickets to the VU Spring Concert with St. Motel!"
