Poetry Slam, Feb. 11: "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know"

Join us for "Mad, Bad and Dangerous to Know," our 3rd annual Poetry Slam on Friday, February 11, in the UFV Chilliwack campus theatre lobby.

As in our previous "Love Hurts" events, poets register immediately prior to the performance and have three minutes to present an original poem.

Judges are randomly selected from the audience. In round one, poets compete for applause. In round two, finalists present a second poem and compete for cash and prizes.

There are no props, musical instruments or fireworks. Love or angst poetry is suggested but not mandatory. Poems can be about any topic.

Doors open and poets register in the theatre lobby at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 11. The slamming starts at 7:30 p.m. Bar and concession available. For more information, call 604- 792-0025, local 2471.

Sponsored by UFV Theatre, English department, and Library.


  1. Can a person read the poem or must it be memorized?

  2. Really looking forward to this event. Good luck to all the participants! - Desmond at UFV Student Life
