Program Description

Event Details

Kick off DogtoberFest with an evening of low-brow, overly-contrived, and badly constructed poetry. Win unforgettable prizes for your lack of eloquence or surprise your audience with something approaching a cohesive thought!

Poets and philistines non-poets of all skill levels are welcome. We will start with some workshopping, then move to an open mic poetry slam. Prizes will be given throughout the program. Visit DogtoberFest website HERE for more library events celebrating the dogs in our lives in October.

Please scroll down to register. Light refreshments served. 

Doggerel poetry is poetry marked as having a loose style and irregular measure, especially for burlesque or comic effect. It's also slang for badly written poetry with little "merit". (We disagree!)
