The first-ever Poetry Slam organized in Delta State would be taking place at Ughelli in a bid to promote the art of poetry in the Niger Delta region and beyond.

According to a press statement by Omoro Blessing, the Creative Director of ECHOES, the organizers of the Poetry Slam tagged: “ECHOES SLAM IT”, the event promotes creative writing and poetry that is gradually taking a nosedive in the region.
