The Pure Ink Poetry Slam: Buffalo Poets Gaining Ground

By Edwin Gomez:

The only regular poetry slam in Buffalo turns two this Wednesday and there is plenty to celebrate! The Pure Ink Poetry Slam started two years ago and has been gaining momentum every 2nd Wednesday of the month.

Not only has the quality and the depth of the poetry grown in those two years but Pure Ink has been representing Buffalo all over the state and even in Canada as evidenced by the Pure Ink team winning the 1st annual Empire State Poetry Slam beating teams from Rochester, Syracuse, Suffern and more last October and then going to Burlington, Ontario last weekend and bringing home the annual QEW poetry slam with a win over teams from Burlington, St. Catharines, Toronto, Rochester and beyond.

Members of the Pure Ink Poetry team have also appeared at Music is Art, the Buffalo Infringement Festival and we continue to grow every month. Come down this Wednesday night to Main Street Studios and see and hear for yourself.

Pure Ink Poetry Slam, every 2nd Wednesday at Main Street Studios, 515 Main, 8pm $5.
