Slam Richmond Youth/ Slam Dominion

Slam Richmond is a multi-faceted organization, including a weekly open mic, workshops for aspiring writers, and an adult and youth slam poetry team. This writing community is designed to be a safe space where all are welcome and poets are encouraged to share their stories in a safe, positive environment. We keep the event free to make it available to everyone, and believe that spoken word can be a lifeline for those who do not have another avenue for self expression.

Open Mic
Every Saturday from 8:30pm to about 10:30pm we hold a free Open Mic. Each person on the list gets 7 minutes to share their art with a community of peers, or perform or appreciate art. Not only are poets welcome, but artists of any kind, to include singers, rappers, musicians, comedians or any talent that you may have. Our open mic is a supportive and energetic atmosphere for veterans and newcomers alike.

Writing Workshop
Every Saturday from 5:30pm to 7:30pm we hold a free Writing Workshop. During our workshop, one of our Slam Richmond Team Members will lead the participants in a writing activity or a writing lesson. These workshops are an opportunity to hone your writing craft, help get yourself into the habit of writing more, and receive suggestions and insights on your work.
