  • Acorn Books will present a unique opportunity to be a part of Dover’s burgeoning poetry scene with its inaugural Poetry Slam on Saturday.
    In this competitive event, poets will choose two pieces to read, each no longer than three minutes and will be scored by judges based on guidelines established by poets of the National Poetry Slam, Inc. The winner of the Poetry Slam will receive a cash prize.
    For those who aren’t in the competitive spirit, fear not. There will be an hour-long open mic session held beforehand for poets not wishing to compete, and the public is welcome to attend.
    The Slam will start at 7 p.m. on Saturday, and the open mic will be held at 6 p.m. Admission is $5. For more information, visit Acorn Books on Facebook, at acornbooks.net, via email at acornbooks.info@gmail.com or by calling 734-9100.
