We had one of our largest season openers to date on Tuesday night! It was a great way to start the season. We saw the starts of some new poems and some favorites. Congratulations to our winners:
1st Place PAUL CANADA
2nd Place CYNTHIA FRENCH
3rd Place NEIL HILBORN
It promises to be a great season. The top three poets from this slam are qualified for our semi finals tournament in December.
Remember the STORY SLAM opener is on Tuesday 8:00 pm at Kieran's Irish Pub. The theme is LIBERATED. Anybody can throw their name in the hat and we will draw up to 12 storytellers to dazzle us with their 5 minute stories on the theme for the evening.
Reminder: Our shows are all ages, but we don't vet or censor people in anyways.
Stay cool everybody!
We are super excited to have had such a great first day of our fundraising campaign. We already met 33% of our goal, but still have quite a ways to go. We decided to add a new reward though to honor the Minnesota State Fair: POEM ON A STICK! A donation that costs your the entrance to the state fair will get you a poem on a stick to enjoy all year long. In fact, we're probably saving you money since you won't be tempted to buy cheese curds too. Click on our campaign to get yours right away!
Oh my gosh you all! We are raising funds for prizes at our slams this season. Please share and donate and receive great rewards or get your tickets so you are set for the season. Help us out any way you can!
Hi All! I'm so glad that you found us here. I am so excited to announce the next step for myself as an event producer and performer. The formation of Word Sprout is something that I have been plotting out for almost a year now and it's finally time to jump right on in! Of course, all of us involved will still be bringing you the same great events and programming that you are used to from SlamMN! a Mumble Mumble Production and the other shows that have become sort of 'housed' under SlamMN!. Mumble Mumble is momentarily no more after it's creation in 2006. This opens us up to really embracing the different genres and kind of shows we have started doing in a better organized way for all of us and will hopefully create some better branding for us over all.
Come back here often. Share the news! We will have some exciting updates in the upcoming months that you will not want to miss.
