Poetry Slam with Geof Hewitt

Get ready for an all-out good time at the Highland Lodge as we celebrate National Poetry Month with a Poetry Slam, hosted by Geof Hewitt! Slam sign-ups start at 6:30 pm and the Slam starts at 7 pm. Whether you are bringing poems or planning on staying in the audience, grab some pub food and beverages at the Highland Lodge bar and get ready for some literary fun!

What’s a poetry slam?*

 Geof Hewitt's guide to Slam Poetry!

Geof Hewitt's guide to Slam Poetry!

Poetry slam is the competitive art of performance poetry, invented in the 1980s by Marc Smith, a Chicago construction worker. Poets perform their own work and are judged Olympic-style by randomly selected members of the audience.

What’s the difference between an open mic and a poetry slam?*

Open mic performers have one stage opportunity to earn a round of applause. Slammers perform original poems in a scored competition, judged by 5 randomly-chosen audience members. In elimination bouts, the highest scoring poets proceed to a second, and sometimes a third round, in hopes of earning a prize.  

Slam FAQ's:

-A three-round, elimination bout!

-So ... be prepared with three original poems.

-A three-minute time limit applies to all poems.

-Slammers may perform from memory or with the manuscript in hand.  

- Winner will receive a surprise prize!

*from the Boston Poetry Slam Website

$10 - $15 Suggested Donation

Questions? Call 802.533.9370 or email info@wonderartsvt.org

Geof Hewitt author of 4 books of poems and Vermont's reigning poetry slam champion, offers readings of his poems, serves as slammaster/host for school and community-wide poetry slams, and leads writing workshops for all ages above third grade.

Let's Talk: Tashi and the Monk

Buddhist Monk Lobsang was trained under the guidance of His Holiness the Dalai Lama but 8 years ago he left behind a life as a spiritual teacher in the United States to create a unique community in the foothills of the Himalayas which rescues orphaned and neglected children. 5 year-old Tashi is the newest arrival. Lobsang has channeled his own unhappy childhood into an opportunity for other ‘uninvited guests of the universe’ to avoid a similar fate. But can the community’s love and compassion transform Tashi’s alienation and tantrums into a capacity to make her first real friend?

The Let’s Talk Film Series is a monthly documentary series focusing on socially relevant themes ranging from food systems and mental health to domestic violence and drone warfare. Local experts and community leaders facilitate post-film community conversations that provide the tools and understanding for how to create positive change in our community through education, outreach, and action. Films are shown in partnership with Vermont PBS at a variety of venues throughout the Northeast Kingdom. This series is supported in part by the New England Grassroots Environment Fund.

Produced by Vermont PBS, Saving Our Waters is comprised of three thought-provoking short documentaries covering steps toward keeping our waterways clean; the impacts of phosphorus and other contaminants; and using the science behind the issues to derive solutions that have positive impact on our communities. Featuring interviews with scientists, citizens, farmers, business owners, and dozens of other stakeholders, the series creates a comprehensive look at the health of the entire watershed of the lake, which encompasses approximately 40% of the state. Saving Our Waters aims to examine the state of the Lake Champlain Basin today with an eye toward practical solutions to keeping Vermont’s waterways clean in an age of extreme weather events.
