Poets perform their work in the form of a friendly competition, scored by an audience of judges. It’s an event that makes space for creative thinkers to explore the power of their words both written and spoken.

The Get Lit! poetry slams turns the spotlight on teens (age 15-18) and college students of any age.* Participants may compete alone or in teams. Each participant should bring two poems, and each performance will be scored, following the same rules as Spokane Poetry Slam. Poets are judged on content, originality and performance, and limited to three minutes per round.

The poetry slams are hosted by EWU’s Writers in the Community, a program which allows graduate students to volunteer at area schools, correctional facilities, hospitals, shelters and other community organizations as creative writing teachers.

*Participants on the cusp of one age group may choose where they feel more comfortable competing. We don’t place language or content restrictions on the slams, so we leave this decision to the poets and their parents.
