Get yrs!!! http://thenewshtshow.bigcartel.com support the new shit team!!

lemme tell y’all why this is important: this year is the 25th anniversary of Poetry Slam Nationals and this year it’ll be held in Oakland (yeah that means ppl in the bay can go to the bouts/get passes!), over the past 8-9 months our show has been hosting slams in order to compile a team to send to nationals and we did it. everyone on the team is extremely talented and they are working so hard to write new poems for the bouts at nationals, this means practice is more like a writing workshop than anything else. support the amazing job these poets are doing!
with the book you get poems by all 5 team members + the 3 on staff
you should definitely get this book!
