Wits End Poetry’s “Say What” event is hosted at Coffee Underground in downtown Greenville every Sunday at 7:30 pm. Sign-ups begin at 7:00 pm.
Please bring your own poems to read or perform if you wish to participate. And don’t worry, it’s a low-stress event where all poetry styles are welcomed! There is a $5 per person cover charge.
The Poetry Slam is held on the last Sunday of each month. Curious as to what poetry slam is? Simply put, poetry slam is the competitive art of performance poetry. It puts a dual emphasis on writing and performance, encouraging poets to focus on what they’re saying and how they’re saying it. A poetry slam is an event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience.
Please note that no shows will be held on major holidays.
Established in 2002, Wits End Poetry is the longest running poetry series in South Carolina! Wits End Poetry is working to make poetry as familiar to people in Upstate, SC as it is to people in New York, LA, and Chicago. The power of poetry lies in its appeal and relevance to diverse audiences. Poetry also encourages and develops literacy and creativity in both adults and youth.
