Every fall, WCWF hosts a poetry slam contest. Previous guest hosts have been National slam poetry winner Bobby LeFebre of Denver and WordHorde, a troupe of five student poets and a professor from Western State in Gunnison.

Look for aninvitation to enter the contest in early fall.Entry forms and rules wil be sent out and two categories wil be accepted under 18 and over 18. Standard national slam rules apply.

The slam and a performance will be held at CMU. Often we also host a workshop on how to write and present slam poetry in association with the slam. Watch for further information on line, on our Facebook page and in our monthly newsletter.
