UST Poetry Slam Club
The Poetry Slam Club was started in fall 2003 by Professor Lisa Arnold. She loves slam poetry and thinks it's a great place for UST poets to hone their skills in performing, writing, listening, thinking. With that, Arnold hosted a kick-off slam to show interested students what slam poetry is all about. 100 people attended and Arnold asked people if they would be interested in being part of an organization that would create events for the UST/ST. Kate's community to hear and take part in spoken word and performance poetry.
From there, Arnold got a small group together, hosted a workshop with Cynthia French and now holds meetings a couple times a month to offer feedback to other poets/performers and plan events.
