What is Slam Poetry? When did it start?
Want to learn? Join KZUM and "The Platte River Sampler" at The Ferguson House on Sunday, April 26, 1:30-4:30 p.m., while Cei Loofe facilitates an entry level Slam Poetry class.
Cei will take us through "how to write a slam poem" about whatever topic you choose. Guests will have an opportunity to recite their poem along with deliverance coaching. There will also be performances by local poets coinciding with the lesson, plus light refreshments.
No registration required, but a suggested $5 donation to KZUM is appreciated.
"The Platte River Sampler" is an original program airing every Thursday, 6-7 p.m., on KZUM. It strives to feature the original work of Nebraska writers, including poetry, prose, plays, songs and more from our home state.
KZUM is proud to again present this summer's free concert series at Lincoln's Stransky Park (17th & Harrison), to run every Thursday from May 14 through July 30!
We're pleased to be growing to 12 concerts in 2015, featuring even more of the best musical talent in our area.
As always, concerts are free, family-friendly events and will run 7-9 p.m. every Thursday throughout the summer. You're encouraged to bring a lawn chair or a blanket to enjoy great entertainment in a beautiful setting.
Be sure to like the KZUM Stransky Park Concerts page on Facebook and stay tuned to KZUM and kZUM.org for updates throughout the season.
We'd like to thank all of the artists, sponsors, volunteers and, most of all, great audience members that helped make last year a huge success. Let's hope for more great weather this year!
See you in the park!
