Event Details

The Texas Grand Slam Poetry Festival is a 2 day poetry feast featuring 42 poets with the gumption to compete for the Title: Texas Grand Slam Poetry Champion and a $1200 Grand Prize. It is the answer to those who are hungry clutching a Sunday morning back row pew of worry with prayers for poetry. We hope that the drought for a state-wide poetry slam has come to a conclusion. We invite everyone to return and are proud to present to you the 3rd Annual TEXAS GRAND SLAM POETRY FESTIVAL!
