Slam

The Point is the People

The word circus that is the friendly game of Slam is a popular way to level the playing field of valid opinions on poetry. Five random people judge competing poets' original poetry, presented with a time limit and without props, to pronounce a "winner". The point is not only the poetry, but the PEOPLE involved who by listening, writing, and sharing, are exposed to more experiences and more poems.
