INDIVIDUAL WORLD POETRY SLAM (IWPS)

The Individual World Poetry Slam (iWPS) is a four day poetry festival, bringing together 96 of the best performance poets from North America, as well as poets from other parts of the world, to compete for the championship title. In this event, poets compete in preliminary competitions (referred to as “bouts”) over two nights. The poets with the top fourteen scores from those days move on to Finals, where one poet is crowned the champion!

In addition to the competition, each day of the festival features poetry workshops, themed open mics, special nighttime events, and parties. All events are open to the public.
