Battery Park Slam -- Huge Success! Thank You!
The 2nd Annual Battery Park Slam
Thursday, August 29
at the Battery Park Band Shell, Burlington...
was a huge success and we would like to thank everyone who participated and attended, it wouldn't have been any fun without you!
We started out with a wonderful open mic session, with original poetry, recited poetry, and a couple of acoustic guitar tunes. With a backdrop of the sun setting behind the mountains, across Lake Champlain, we then heard wonderful original poems from a variety of poets. Some of our current YWP all-stars (Quella, Samiam) as well as some of our busy college-aged YWPers (who we need to shame into spending more time on the site!), gg, Jef Hewitt, and some new faces as well. A great time was had by all, and we'd like to send out a sincere thank you to everyone who attended, especially the first time slammers, and those of you who made a trek to be there. Thank you!
