About the Slam:

Paying homage to spoken word's roots in Hip Hop, "freestyle" is a type of rap in which the lyrics are improvised or performed with no previously composed lyrics and/or "off the top of the head".

In this slam, you may rap but you also may freestyle spoken word, either way, your performance MUST be improvised by the topics we select in that moment.

Brush up on your improvisation and freestyle skills, there's $20 on the line!

About the featured poet:
Sam Rush was raised in South Florida, but now makes poems and songs in and around New Hampshire. Sam got to writing poems after developing progressive hearing loss as a teenager and noticing how many words each word could be. They represented the venue Slam Free or Die in the 2014 and 2015 National Poetry Slam and the 2014 and 2015 Women of the World Poetry Slams (WOWPS), preforming on finals stage at WOWPS 2015. Sam has work published or forthcoming in Snacks, Drunk in a Midnight Choir and Alight: The Best Loved Poems of WOWPS (2014 and 2015 editions) and currently works for a non-profit focused on empowering youth from cultures in conflict.
