All-Ages Anything Goes Slam with Vermont’s reigning Poetry Slam Champion, Geof Hewitt. Participants present one piece of work in under 5 minutes, with five random audience members judging in this “Anything Goes!” slam. Poets, musicians, writers, comedians: Compete for a Noseflute! The piece may be original or a “cover,” and must be suitable for audiences of all ages. Geof Hewitt lives in Calais with his wife Janet. They have two grown children and two grandsons. Geof has been writing poems since he was seventeen. He has published four books of poetry and four books of nonfiction, all available at your local bookstore or out of the back of his car: just ask! In 2004, Geof won the Vermont Slam Championship by one-tenth of a point; no state championship has been held since, so he continues to brag that he is “The Champ.” He stays busy offering writing workshops in schools across Vermont.
