Join Slama for July to send off Team Slama to the National Poetry Slam, and warm up for the new season. This month it's a special off-season "new shit" slam where first time slammers get their name in the hat twice, and poets who've slammed before have to do brand new poems, at least in the first round. It's to encourage new poets and challenge regulars. We can't wait for a fresh new season with new poets and new poems.
With the Grand Slam over and Team Slama decided, we're in the off season, it's time for some fun to get the team ready for slamming as a Team and to show y'all what it's like.
Four teams are going to compete in this special 4x4 Team Slam. Teams of 4 compete over 4 rounds, presenting both group and individual pieces.
The biggest night of Slama's year, the Grand Slam brings together our top 12 poets from the past season on one stage to decide the Grand Slam Champion, and the four poets travelling to the United States in August to compete in The National Poetry Slam. Featuring the 2017 Grand Slam Champ, wāni.
