The 2015 National Poetry Slam is coming BACK to Oakland, California August 10th-15th, 2015!
This is what we’re all here for – the final round of the world’s biggest poetry slam! NPS is the largest team poetry slam anywhere and is the definitive showcase for competitive performance poetry. The top four teams from the week-long festival will vie for the title and the 2015 National Poetry Slam Champions will be crowned at the end of this epic battle in front of a packed to the rafters room.
The National Poetry Slam is an annual poetry slam championship tournament, where teams of poets gather to share their work with the community and to compete against each other for the national team title. The festival is part championship tournament, part poetry summer camp, and part traveling exhibition. Staged in a different city each year, the National Poetry Slam has emerged as spoken word’s highest profile showcase!
