TORONTO POETRY SLAM is a twice-monthly spoken word competition, where the judges vote on each poem presented. This ain’t your grandma’s poetry!
The Toronto Poetry Slam will be at 918 Bathurst Saturday September 8, September 23, and October 7, 2018.
TPS is all about ideas, with one in particular: people sharing poetry for everyone to enjoy. You’ll hear pure honesty poured onto the stage, wrapped in an entertaining performance style you won’t see anywhere else. Best of all, anyone can slam! Just show up to sign up for 730pm sharp. Judges from the audience score each poem between 0 and 10, basing their scores on both content n’ performance. 12 poets are in the first round, then it’s whittled down to 6, and the a final 3 poets battle it out in the final round. Winners get $80 and a bye into the semis. Poets can also get points towards making the Toronto Poetry Slam Team.
