Pure Ink Poetry is celebrating its ten-year anniversary in the month of January. That’s a pretty big deal.
What was originally started by Buffalo poet Brandon Williamson on January 31, 2022, has become a reliable outlet for regional poets who are looking to hone their skills in front of live audiences.
Pure Ink Poetry is the only monthly running poetry slam in Buffalo, NY and is nationally certified by Poetry Slam Incorporated.
“We’re proud to say that we’re celebrating our 10-year anniversary this month with the thing we do best. Slam. This time we’re coming together on a Monday! This is a two-round slam.”
There is a $5 cover charge for spectators and slammers, along with a $50.00 prize for first place.
