WordXWord will host a Winter Invitational Poetry Slam at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29, at yBar, 391 North St.
The six poets invited to perform are drawn from the Berkshire area as well as New York City.
Berkshire poets include Curtis Asch, Elizag and Seth Brown. New York poets include Omar Holmon, Ian Khadan and Jared Singer.
The WXW Winter Invitational Slam will pit the poet/performers against each other for fun and prizes, with a twist. Prior to each round of poems, a special condition will be drawn by an audience member from a hat. The conditions may apply to the poets content or to their presentation.
The WXW Winter Invitational Slam will be hosted by Berkshire-based poet Melissa Quirk.
Admission is free. Information: www.WXW365.org.
