Straight Out of Brooklyn: “The Word Life Poetry Slam”

It's been far too long since we've had a poetry event that truly captures the essence of talent and creativity straight out of Brooklyn. The "Word Life Literary Poetry Mixer" hosted by Chris Slaughter is the perfect opportunity to experience the magic of spoken word in an intimate and welcoming setting.

Chris Slaughter, with his impressive educational background and numerous fellowships, is a true master of the craft. His passion for poetry and literature shines through in everything he does, and his dedication with continuing to support a space for poets to share their work is truly commendable.

In a time where we are all still reeling from the effects of a global pandemic, this event is a much-needed balm for the soul. The opportunity to come together with fellow poetry lovers, to share our words and our stories, is a powerful form of healing. The Von King Art Gallery provides the perfect backdrop for an evening of creativity and connection.

Not only will attendees have the chance to hear from some of Brooklyn's most talented writers and lyricists, but there will also be an open mic for anyone who wants to share their work. This is a rare opportunity to step out of our comfort zones, to take a risk and put ourselves out there in front of a supportive and appreciative audience.

And let's not forget about the food! The organizers of this event have thought of everything, providing delicious refreshments for the performers to enjoy. This is a chance to relax, unwind, and let go of the stresses of the week. It's a time to nourish our bodies and our souls, to feed our creativity and our spirits.

So, if you're looking for a way to escape the chaos of the world, if you're craving a night of inspiration and connection, then look no further than the "Word Life Literary Poetry Mixer." Put your name on the list, mark your calendar for July 26th, and get ready for an unforgettable evening of poetry and community. This event is not to be missed.
