Cheer on local writers during the latest Nasty Slam, a live poetry contest at Spirit where the winner is determined by audience applause. Bring three poems, your friends, and a willingness to fight dirty with your most ill-mannered, aggressive, take-no-prisoners attitude. The triumphant will take home a $200 cash prize and the prestige of being one of Pittsburgh’s nastiest poets.
