The 21st annual National Poetry Slam has brought together 76 teams from across North America as hundreds of the world's best poets have converged on St. Paul this week. They've been battling nightly in hopes of clinching the national title this coming Sunday at the Roy Wilkins Auditorium. This five-day festival of non-stop performances, workshops, and heated performance poetry competitions is inspiring audiences and bringing incredible poetry from the national stage to our local community.
