On the first Friday of every month the Bean Cycle, a coffee shop located in downtown Fort Collins, hosts a poetry slam featuring local artists. Anyone is welcome to participate in the event and it is free. Throughout the night, a jar is passed around for tips and at the end of the contest the winner is awarded the jar full of money. Poetry slam coordinator, Booger, believes that slam poetry is an important outlet to introduce to students at all levels and is proud to be keeping it alive in the Fort Collins community.
