Bring your most ghoulish and eerie poems for our Halloween Slam and Open Mic @ Indy Reads in Indianapolis, IN!

Event Details

Indy Reads and Booth (students, faculty, and alumni from the Butler University MFA program) are excited to partner to host our first Halloween Slam and Open Mic. Costumes are encouraged!

We welcome poets of all ages . The Slam & Open Mic is family-friendly – no curse words or explicit language will be permitted. Our Slam will begin at 6:30pm followed by the Open Mic.

Advanced registration is required for those wanting to be part of the Slam. Please email Bek Primrose at to secure your spot by 5pm, on Friday, October 14.

The Slam will have 10 slots. Judges will score each poem (no longer than three minutes) from 1-10. The three of those that have the highest points will move onto the second round. The person with the highest points during that second round will be the winner. Prizes include a subscription to Booth for one year and a free used book from Indy Reads.

Open Mic sign-ups will be accepted at the Indy Reads bookstore starting at 6pm, on October 15.
