The Steel City Slam is a Free Speech Zone! Poets may say whatever they like on our mic! This means you may hear: cuss words, mature themes, or difficult and/or triggering content on our microphone. HOWEVER, we remind the audience they ALSO have the power of free speech, and are encouraged to respond accordingly to content presented on the mic. We advise our poets and audience to be respectful to one another and engage each other in conversation about the content of the poetry and behaviour presented on and off our stage.
