Congratulations to the Macalester Poetry Slam team for taking first place at the 2011 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational at the University of Michigan last weekend.
In addition to taking first, they also received the award for Best Writing by a Team while three of the team's poets received individual awards. (Teams from 37 other colleges and universities teams competed.)
To prepare, all five team members met for six hours each week to do intensive writing workshops with their coach Sierra DeMulder, an adult National Poetry Slam Champion and published author under Write Bloody Publishing. They did group writing exercises and extensive rewrites of their pieces, spending weeks crafting the poems and performances.
