Phoenix Poetry Slam is an all-ages poetry slam hosted online every week on Thursday at 7pm AZ MST. Poets interested in competing may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The first 10 poets will be sent an email confirmation of the date and rules.
Today’s Phoenix Poetry Slam from Lawn Gnome Publishing is the result of years of seeking talented new voices and promoting strong literary events.
Lawn Gnome Publishing brought the 2014 Individual World Poetry Slam to Phoenix, AZ. It was the first time a Poetry Slam Inc event has been held in Arizona since the performance art was established in the 90’s. Our mission is to provide a space for local writers/artists/performers/etc. to explore and perfect their own craft. Our commitment is community. We welcome persons of any and all genders, sexualities, ethnicities, abilities, ages, etc. As writers and literary critics, we value freedom of speech and thus do not limit, moderate or otherwise censor any content, and so there is a blanket trigger warning for all events. However, we strive to create a constructive atmosphere of equality, sensitivity, and progress, one that encourages discussion and actively opposes marginalization of any persons or group. Our goal isn’t tolerance of diversity, but its empowerment and alliance.
Lawn Gnome Publishing is an independent bookstore and publishing house located in the Roosevelt Row Art’s District of Phoenix, AZ. Our address is 912 N 5th St. We are in the process of converting a 1930’s bungalow into an all-ages venue for literary events with a bookstore and coffee. Your attendance to our is critical in making this vision a reality during these unprecedented times.
