Lake Effect Poetry

Cleveland, Ohio's Poetry Slam Team

What’s Ahead…

Contrary to what is being said and reported elsewhere, I, Vertigo Xavier, have NOT stepped down as the slamministrator of Lake Effect Poetry.

That said, Lake Effect Poetry HAS passed its status as a PSI Certified Slam Venue on to AKeemjamal Rollins’ new The People Slam.

There are some very big things in the works for LEP right now, but they will take time to come to fruition.  I cannot reveal too much right now, but if you happen to see me at a show, feel free to ask me about what’s cooking for the next 18 months.  Meanwhile, LEP will likely still assemble teams for some regional slam events.

The People Slam takes place on the SECOND and FOURTH Thursday of each month at the Happy Dog Euclid Tavern (11625 Euclid Ave. Cleveland, OH 44106) after two inaugural events on December 15 and 29.  Follow the series on Facebook at (
