The Des Moines Poetry Slam is held the 3rd Tuesday of every month at Java Joes, 214 4th St, Des Moines, Iowa. It is located in the room to the right, directly across from the ordering counter.
Tonight, there is room for 13 poets reading original poems. Sign-up starts at 6:30p, bring 3 poems. All read in the first round, they eliminate for second round and top 3 read for place in third round. 5 judges score with the high/low dropped. Come early to make a new friend, grab a good seat and a drink. They need the love of an audience.
