Event Details

BUSBOYS AND POETS & @BeltwaySlamDC Presents:

2017-2018 SLAM SEASON

A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Typically, the host or another organizer selects the judges, who are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets' content and performance.


The Beltway Poetry Slam OPEN SLAM
