The team just got back from the 2006 Rust Belt Regional Poetry Slam, and had a blast! Columbus represented with two teams this year and each team did their thing. Black Pearl came in 2nd place in each of their bouts, but did not get into finals. But no worries! The team had a great time and took a big step towards being ready for the National Poetry Slam in August. Thanks to all those who sent well wishes to the team.

Oh, by the way, Black Pearl Poetry will be the host for the 2007 Rust Belt Regional Poetry Slam!
