What is Poetry Slam?
  • Simply put, poetry slam is the competitive art of
    performance poetry. It puts a dual emphasis on
    writing and performance, encouraging poets to
    focus on what they're saying and how they're
    saying it.
  • While you wont be competing, you will be using
    the poetry slam format to get your message out
    and inform your peers on an issue that is
    important to YOU.

What is a Poetry Slam?
  • Your issue will be one that also has historical
    influencein other words, whatever topic you pick
    must be something grounded in history (i.e. human
    rights, etc.)

    become your SLAM!

    description (ie. I felt empty, could be I felt
    like a hollow drum.)

Tips for writing SLAM poetry

    Since the document was ratified, our world has

    information in your poetry slam? Does it give
    you any ideas?
