Watershed Books will host its second annual poetry slam on Saturday, March 28.
The event will take place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Cafe Victoria, 301 N. Main St., Lakeport.
Poetry slams are venues for poets and performers. No props are allowed, and while some poets use nothing but their words to deliver a poem, other stretch the boundaries of the format, tap-dancing, beatboxing or using choreographed movements. The audience is definitely part of the action.
Judges are chosen from the audience and cheering on favorites is encouraged.
Host Cheri Holden of Watershed Books has cash prizes for first, second and third place winners. There will be three poems, three rounds and three winners.
Poet performers may sign up for competition at the door.
