In collaboration with The Art League of Long Island, Muse will be hosting an East-Meets-West Coast style slam! Long Island’s powerful poetry tradition has inspired us to create a gathering of our region’s most dynamic performers in one space for a celebration of the art form, and a friendly spirit of competition.
14 Poets will compete! 5 Judges will be chosen at random from the audience!
