Wordstock, Portland's annual book and literary festival, kicks off this week with the Wordstock Superstar Poetry Slam, which is sponsored by Portland Monthly. A slam is a competition, where judges picked at random from the audience will score these six poets' performances as they compete for a $1,500 first prize. Wordstock has assembled some of the premier performers in the US for this event, including winners of numerous US and international slam championships. Come join Portland Monthly for an outstanding evening of literary performance you won't soon forget!
