The Unified Slam is returning from April 25 – April 27, 2019. Bay Area Festival in celebration of National Poetry Month.

 

HOW THE SLAM WORKS

A poetry slam is a competition in which poets share their work in front of an audience and are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 by a panel of judges from an array of backgrounds. The point of a poetry slam is to defy mediums and platforms that are traditionally given to spoken word artists in an effort to create an interactive experience for both the poets and the audience. Each registered team is guaranteed to compete in two preliminary bouts. A ‘bout’ is essentially a team slam that consists of four rounds.
