Join us as we host our third annual STEAM Engine Poetry Slam. The STEAM Engine Poetry Slam will feature spoken word artists who were invited to write and perform about the wonderful world of science, while competing for the grand prize of $700.

Entry is free for audience members and competing poets. Complimentary food and beverage will be provided. The audience casts their electronic vote for their favorite performance, using their smartphones.

If you would like to participate in the show, it's not too late. Every year we host a Last Chance Slam before the invitational slam. The top two poets from the Last Chance Slam will be invited to perform in the official slam and they’ll also be paid $250 to compete.

Doors open at 6 p.m., event starts at 7 p.m. Reserve your free ticket on Eventbrite.

This event is in collaboration with community partners: Artist Village Detroit (host venue), food vendors: Sweet Potato Sensations and Old Redford Kitchen.
