What is a Poetry Slam?
Their poems are sexy and their delivery is captivating… don’t miss it!
The Slam is a performance poetry competition where each poet has a 3 minute time limit to perform a poem, earning a score between 0 and 10 points. Poets must perform their own original work, without props, costumes or musical accompaniment.
Scores are awarded by randomly-picked judges from the audience. Scores are based on content, originality and performance.
The winning poet and first runner up will receive a sexy prize.
While the slam can sometimes get heated and competitive, this community always holds true to the famous words of Slam Poet Allan Wolff:
THE POINT IS NOT THE POINTS,
THE POINT IS THE POETRY
