What happens when you put 11 of the best poets in Syracuse and ask them to perform their best work in front of 5 random jobs + an amazing crowd? = POWERFUL POETRY!
After an amazing summer of poetry slam, we’ve finally reached the slam finals and we want you to come. These poets are going to leave everything on the stage – hearts, passion, hope, pain – ALL OF IT.
This will be your LAST chance to catch Salt City Slam this fall!
The slam will feature National Poetry Slam finalist, Jared Paul.
Having toured internationally in over 200 cities throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe playing alongside legendary poets, musicians, journalists, and speakers such as Amy Goodman, Saul Williams, Bill Clinton, Sage Francis, Our Lady Peace, Paul Hawken, Jello Biafra, Immortal Technique, Anti-Flag, Atmosphere, The Misfits and many others, Jared is widely recognized as one of the premiere performance poets in the world. His work has been featured on the Canadian Broadcast Company program, “Zed TV,” as well as in CMJ Magazine and The Providence Journal. Jared is a two time Individual World Poetry Slam Finalist and has been a featured poet at the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, the Post Secret national book tour, South By Southwest Music Festival, and Net Roots Nation. He was also the headlining act for the 2009 Karl Wilhelm Diefenbach grand opening at the nationally acclaimed Villa Stuck gallery in Munich, Germany.
“Jared Paul is a stunning performer – staring audiences in the eyes and calling for conscious responses to injustice. His talent at sharing complex ideas through verse should not be missed.” -The Eureka Times Standard
