The English Department will be hosting a poetry slam this upcoming Wednesday, the 18th. It will be held in the Crossroads at 7 p.m.
It is a free event, and prizes will be given out to "slammers." Students who wish to participate can sign up at the information desk in the Manwaring Center. All, however, are invited to come and enjoy the show.
