2019 Sparky Slam

Tomas Stanton of Phonetic Spit

ASU’s Sparky Slam is a valley-wide poetry contest featuring original work by students in grades 5-12. The purpose of the Sparky Slam is to welcome young people onto a college campus, to celebrate youth voices, and to provide young artists with writing support from ASU faculty and students. This year, a writing workshop will take place immediately before the competition.

5–5:45 p.m., Workshop time for poets (get feedback on your poem from an ASU writing mentor) and pizza
