The OkStupid Poetry Slam is exactly what it sounds like: a chance to turn your creepy, unsolicited OkCupid messages into sweet, Shakespearean stanzas.

Let's call a spade a spade here, and admit that the world of online dating is fraught with awkward, embarrassing and unpleasant moments. At some point or another, everyone in the online dating pool has, or will receive, a totally weird, off-the-wall message from a stranger who wants to stroke our hair. While we often share these messages with our friends (or the police), the poetry slam offers us the opportunity to divulge our strangest dating mishaps to an audience -- in a completely dramatic, theatrical way.

The experience is sure to be hilarious, and maybe even a little cathartic.
