The Connecticut Poetry Slam Team (Verbal Slap) is asking for donations to help us compete this summer in The National Poetry Slam which is the largest spoken word event in the nation.

This year's team members are Midnight, Influence, Hawk, Jazzy, and Chief. Croilot is the Slammaster and Frederick Douglass is the coach.

Our vision is to put our state on the map and show the rest of the country the wealth of talent Connecticut has to offer.

Poetry Slam is a verbal acrobatic literary sport that has provided an avenue for young people all over the world to sharpen their literary swords while presenting their own brand of hard-hitting social commentary!

August 12th-17th, teams from all over the country, including Alaska and Hawaii, will converge on Charlotte, NC for this event!

Please help us make a difference as we seek to be #1 in this national competition.


** All contributions will go towards our travel and lodging **



Gas: $200.00

Food between 7 poets: $1,000.00

3 ( rooms for 6 days: $ 2,862.00

Great talent & performance. What's different? They are icy cool. They might use some bad words, carefully. They might enjoy erotica ...respectfully. They always stand up against exploitation & cruelty. They are international, but attend to the root causes of death and misery here at home in New Haven.
