Poetry Slams:  Education, Entertainment, Development


Host and sponsor your own 
Poetry Slam....
and for very good reasons...
 

Universities, Colleges 

High Schools, Secondary
 

    Please see biographical information on Ray, but if there is one person that you'd want to see host and run a poetry slam, use this vehicle to bring out the very best in people, it would be a winner, a champion - someone who knows poetry, poetry slams, and poetry education, inside and out. That person would be Ray McNiece. See comments below from students, and scroll down for photos of Ray and some winning poetry slam teams on the national level.
