Poetry Slam is taking the world by storm
Poetry Slam is the competitive format taking the world by storm. A high energy, enthralling event where performance poets are judged by random members of the audience in an arbitrary but totally engaging way.
Since 2011, many of Greater Wellington’s finest performance poets have competed and this year’s events have been no different. Sold out events, packed open mics and searing hot slams scream out that poetry is alive and kicking in the capital.
Cash prizes for the first three places
There are cash prizes for the first three places, PLUS the winner will travel to Christchurch in November to compete for the title of New Zealand Slam Champ.
