December 4th, 2009 is the date, 4pm is the time – The Poetry Slam is once again going down @ DMHS in the TV Studio.  If you made it out to the first slam, you know the deal, if you missed it – I’m sure you heard it was dope.  Don’t worry though, you have a chance to witness the power of the word, once again.  This time we are welcoming 5 time National Poetry Slam poet Monique Martin to DMHS.

If you are interested in competing, come see Mr. Garza or Mr. Cisneros in room H4-112. One Hundred dollars is on the line for the poet that brings the heat.                      **  Get to writing, practice and come claim the cash **
