Slam seeks poets



BAR HARBOR — Poets and lovers of verse are invited to stop by the Verses Unleashed poetry slam at the Jesup Memorial Library on Friday, Feb. 16, at 7 p.m. Participants are welcome to share their poetry or a piece of poetry that inspires them, whether it’s a haiku, ode, sonnet or free verse, a finished piece, or just something they have been working on. Unlike traditional slams, the Jesup’s slam is about community, camaraderie and celebrating different types of poetry. It’s not a competition.

Contact the Jesup at 288-4245 or mrice@jesuplibrary.org.
