Lourdes University Student Activities and Toledo Streets Newspaper present a Poetry Jam at 5:30 p.m. in the Ebeid Student Center (Russell Ebeid Hall) at 6832 Convent Blvd. in Sylvania. The event is free and open to the public.

Local writers of all levels of experience are invited to participate in this reading and informal slam competition. Participants will be invited to read for 3-5 minutes on the theme “Our Roots Run Deep,” reflecting on their personal cultural heritage and/or the diversity of American culture as a whole.

Readers may choose to read works written by others, such as a favorite influential author, or share original poetry/spoken word pieces. Only original work will be considered for the slam.
