Thumbs up: Poetry that pays

Calling all poets: It's not too late to get in on a slam poetry competition hosted this weekend by the Malcolm X Institute of Black Studies at Wabash College in Crawfordsville. The slam will kick off at 9 p.m. on Saturday. At least starving artist will leave with some serious bread: The grand prize is $1,000. Email Tyler Griffin at tdgriffi13@wabash.edu for an entry form and a copy of the rules. One more tip from the poetry beat: A new anthology of modern poetry featuring work from around the country includes several Indy-based writers. A book launch for 2012 Reckless Writing: The Modernization of Poetry by Emerging Writers of the 21st Century is set for 2 p.m. Dec. 8 at Indy Reads Bookstore. Expect live readings from many of the featured poets. Can you dig?
