National Poetry Slam 2011 Preliminaries
939 Boylston Street
Boston, MA, 02115
It's the preliminary matches of the National Poetry Slam, where every night, poetry slam teams from all over North America battle it out to see who will win the biggest competition in slam.
In the fast-paced art of poetry slam, competitors have a limited amount of time to impress judges randomly selected from the audience. Performers use the tricks of storytelling, songwriting, theater, stand-up comedy, and cold hard poetry to wheedle points out of the judges from 0.0 (terrible) to 10.0 (perfect).
