The power of language shines through in this yearly poetry showcase featuring some of the best slam poets around. Artists come together on a weekly basis for these judged poetry slams, and the top competitors from this year will come together for the Grand Slam at Town Hall. Poets must perform all-original work, stay within a time limit, and refrain from using props or costumes.
Highly entertaining, this diverse array of slammers and topics make this a can’t-miss competition. The winner of this all-ages show will travel with the 2015 Seattle National Poetry Slam Team for a five-day competition in Oakland, California.
This year’s featured poets are Roberto Ascalon and Imani Sims. The Grand Slam will be hosted by Rose McAleese, with music by DJ Whatever.
