If you’re looking for a quiet evening of poetry, the fifth annual Evergreen Invitational Poetry Slam is not the event for you.
The audience is encouraged to cheer on 13 “slam” poets competing for prize money at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Evergreen Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, 1607 Fourth St., Marysville.
Performers are rated by a panel of judges and by audience members holding up score cards in an attempt to sway the judges.
Admission is a donation of $10; $5 for students. Call 360-659-6621 for more details.
