Phoenix Poetry Slam Championships

The Top 11 poets in Phoenix + the winner of the Last Chance Slam compete to see who will rep Phoenix at the National Poetry Slam in Chicago, Illinois! Slam begins at 8pm. The slam will be hosted at Megaphone PHX!

 

A poetry slam differs from an open-mic poetry reading in a couple of different ways. Slam poets have three minutes for the reading, can use drama elements while performing and are judged by non-poets from the audience. Performers are scored on a scale of 0-10 with one decimal, just like the scoring in the Olympics, except this championship is in downtown Phoenix, AZ on Friday, June 15, 8pm.

In order to qualify for the Phoenix Poetry Slam Championship, poets had to compete in a series of slams prior to this one. There were 26 poets in central Arizona that fulfilled that criteria, and the top eleven in rankings will compete in a three round poetry slam (with cutthroat eliminations) to determine which four poets will represent Phoenix Poetry Slam and Lawn Gnome Publishing

Today’s Phoenix Poetry Slam from Lawn Gnome Publishing is the result of years of seeking talented new voices and promoting strong literary events.
