Poetry Slam at St. Benedict


April 24, 2012 - St. Benedict grade 9 students Fraser MacLeod and Dennis Leblanc listen to the rules of poetry competition as given by professional performance poet Tanya Neumeyer. One parameter is that the performance is timed, so students run the risk of being penalized if their poetry is too short or runs too long. During this poetry battle their classmates enjoyed actively participating as judges giving points for delivery, while other students got to cheer, clap or snap their fingers if they liked the score given or ‘boo’ if they disagreed with a low score. Poetry slams are now a widespread form of popular poetry.
