The poetry slam is open to those who wish to recite or read aloud an original poem or short piece of literature in English for a live audience. If you would like to read, please visit our facebook page to sign up. As a special bonus to participating poets, in collaboration with Akademie Schloss Solitude, there will be a post-slam creative writing workshop held at Schloss Solitude. As featured readers, we'll have Akademie Schloss Solitude fellows Kinga Tóth and Michelle Sterling, plus the live band SÜDSOUL playing contemporary American soul and jazz! The audience will be the jury. Bring your friends!
With performances of the fellows Michelle Sterling (fellow 2013–2015) and Kinga Tóth (fellow 2011–2013).
In English. Admission free!
An event under the auspices of American Days and in cooperation with the Department of Literature and the chair for American Studies and Modern English Literature of the University of Stuttgart.
