Manifest showcases Storms of Summer poetry slam tonight

After the success of May’s themed poetry slam, the monthly Manifest showcase at The Camp House, 1427 Williams St., returns with an open slam tonight. Unlike the last slam, which centered on the theme of love, this one has no central topic, according to organizer/slam master Christian J. Collier.

Each participating poet will have three minutes and 10 seconds to perform his an original poem. If the poet goes beyond the allotted time, he or she will be penalized. After each performance, the judges will assign scores ranging from zero to 10. At the end of the night, the poet with the highest score will walk away with a cash prize.

Poets can sign up on-site starting at 8 p.m. The slam will begin at 9. Admission is $5 for participating poets and $8 for general admission
