It was the annual Dead Poets’ slam organized by Christine Louise Berry of SmartGals again. It was a bit later in the year than usual, but again at Skylight books this year.
Pictured is the audience and some of the performers and judges (I was not a judge this year, so hid in the back*), with (standing) Christine (left) explaining the rules and using the services of actress and filmmaker Amy French (right – a regular commenter here on the blog!) as guest “sacrificial poet” to help calibrate the judging.
I found it a good opportunity to quickly grab a few faces while I sat and listened. Scanned the results for you.
