Frankenslam: Where Poetry is Alive! It’s Alive! (Sullivan)
Event Details

This poetic celebration begins with a hybrid lecture and performance, bringing monstrous poems to life by John Keats, Margaret Atwood, Jericho Brown, Wendell Berry, and more. After exploring Shelley’s influence on rock and hip hop culture, participants are invited to create their own “horrorcore poem” in an interactive writing workshop. Echoing Byron’s ghost story challenge, the session concludes with a Frankenslam, where all are invited to share their poetic creations on the mic.

FRANKENSLAM, co-sponsored by the Sullivan County Public Library and Sullivan High School English Department, will take place at SHS and is open to English students and staff who wish to participate.
