What is Poetry Slam?

"A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work (or, more rarely, that of others). These performances are then judged on a numeric scale by previously selected members of the audience.

Typically, poetry slam is highly politicized, speaking on many issues including current social and economic issues, gendered injustices, and racial issues. Poets are judged not only on the content of their slam but the manner of delivery and passion behind their words."

Rules
* Each poem must be of the poet's own construction;
* Each poet gets three minutes
* The poet may not use props, costumes or musical instruments;

"The points are not the point. The point is poetry"

Cover - RM10
Free for performers!
