Last month, Figment asked its members to submit audio or video of themselves reading or reciting poetry. The results were incredible. We got love poems and break-up poems, comedies and heart-breakers. We’ve included some of the other entries below, because so many deserve to be heard. Enjoy!
We’d love to hear your feedback on these pieces in comments, and be sure to visit & follow these poets on Figment.
Winner: Nick McLellan
Runner-up: Taylor Chadwick
The five random entrants who win a tote bag are: Anna Dunlap, Anna Redekop, Charlotte, Julia, and Luke Barragan. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address!
Many, many thanks to those of you who entered our Slam Poetry Challenge.
