Each year on Valentine's day we host one of the sexiest evenings in the Twin Cities at the Poetry SlamMN! Erotica slam! We have added a second night the last few years because they are so popular. We are super excited to announce that this year Word Sprout will not only be adding a third night, but will be hosting a love/romance/erotica tournament with a $500 prize for the winner and other prizes for top places to be announced soon.
WE NEED A NAME for our tournament! Put your suggestions in the comments and if you win you will receive a pass to the tournament!
Mark your calendars for Feb. 13th-15th for all the squishy fun. Preliminary bouts will be held Thursday and Friday and the top poets will compete in finals Saturday night!
