Slam nationals update

lyrics on the lake
The 22nd Annual National Poetry Slam will be held in Madison, Wisconsin from August 3-9.

From pentameter to publishing to film screenings to managing depression, Lyrics on the Lake presents a broad arsenal of tools for the development of every attendee.

In fact, not only will NPS teams be encouraged to take stock of their skills and opportunities, but non-competing members will find it worthwhile to travel and participate in the series, as well.

Festival attendees will enjoy a series called PenTactics, which offers instruction and insight on other areas of writing, to include children’s books, screenplays and creative nonfiction.

Other series will ignite full-time performers, scout greater opportunities, support poetry organizers in shaping their local communities, and extend tools to enrich your personal lives.

Some of the venues:
Madison Musem of Contemporary Art
Brink Lounge
The Bartell, Drury Theater, Evjue Theater
Majestic Theater
The Comedy Club
Orpheum Stage Door
Genna’s
Montmartre
Madison’s
Angelic Brewery
Workshops: UW Madison Humanities Building
Finals: Overture Hall
