As part of Lit Crawl NYC, BOMB Magazine presents: Poetry Smackdown this Saturday at 7pm at Dempsey’s Pub (61 2nd Avenue). Twelve poets will compete in a read-off to win the love of the audience and eternal glory. The first 50 people who attend will get a free chapbook of poetry by our contestants.
Rumpus Poetry Book Club author Leigh Stein will MC, and judges include: Rumpus Funny Women editor Elissa Bassist (me, speaking of myself in the third person), Vol. 1 Brooklyn‘s Founding Editor Jason Diamond, and BOMB Magazine’s Online Poetry Editor Jozeph Herceg.
Poets being judged include:
Jennifer L. Knox
We’d all be eternally grateful to see you on Saturday.
