Wakefield will also lead a workshop on slam poetry at noon March 14 in the Blue Creek Bay Room of Edminster Student Union Building. Slam poetry is the modern competitive art of performance poetry that puts dual focus on what is being said as well as how it is being said.

The event is free and open to the public.
