KMAC Poetry Slam

Presented in partnership with Louisville's Commission on Public Art and Mr. Spreadlove, Lance G. Newman.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, KMAC will not be returning to our Poetry Slams at this time. We don't feel that a virtual slam could  offer the same sense of community, camaraderie, and artistic support that makes the in-person events so vital. Instead, we'll be transitioning to a Poetry Series for the near term. Each Poetry Series episode will feature the work of a local poet, as well as a poetry workshop brought to you by Mr. Spreadlove, Lance G. Newman. It's our hope that this Series will bring attention to local artists and help emerging artists hone their craft until in-person slams are once again safe.

Each KMAC Poetry Series episode will premiere on Facebook.
