1st Annual Poetry Slam ~ Voices of Poets

Here at The River our poetry mission has been to be a place for poets to be heard from around the world. Until now we have accomplished this by publishing the poems of poets but that did not feel like enough. It only encompassed the written word of voice. So, to keep with our mission we have come up with a way poets can be heard by sound with an online multi-media Poetry Slam. Then to add a little more excitement we have made it a contest too.

OPEN from December 30 @ 12 pm CST to December 31st @ 12pm CST

So what to you do………..
