Slamma Lamma Ding Dong
Copyright © 2005
by Dan Leamen

Slamma Lamma Ding Dong is the combined effort of thirty-five of Nebraska's slam poets. Appealing to fans of both the written and spoken word, it gives voice to the rich culture, the wild imagination, and the diverse spirit of the plains. — from the publisher

Magic is what poetry is about. Magic can and does happen on the page, but the connection slams allow between poet and audience is both larger and more personal than the printed word. And itís reassuring, in a new century and millennium, to see that most ancient of the literary arts, poetry, return to its oral roots. When it comes to slams, poetry is the winner. — from the essay "Downtown Slam" by JV Brummels
