Calling all poets! An open poetry “slam” will be held at Rochester Institute of Technology at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4. The reading will be held at Java Wally’s, the café in the RIT Library.

The event is sponsored by Signatures Art & Literary Magazine, an annual publication of student poetry, prose, graphic art, animation, music and video supported by RIT’s College of Liberal Arts.

Representatives from Signatures will award prizes at the poetry slam. Portions of the event will be videotaped and later included on the multimedia CD distributed with Signatures Magazine in the spring.
