The Slam Club was filled to the brim for Wednesday evening poetry night with a range of voices. Young first-time performers joined seasoned stage veterans and Amy Leigh Wicks’ poetry group came out in force for the open mic. Internationally acclaimed Tusiata Avia brought both tears and raucous applause while queer narratives came to the fore with words by Khye Hitchcock and Jennifer Shields.
