Albuquerque Women of the World Poetry Slam Championship

The Slam Lives!

Beat Poets / Public domain

If you're one of those folks that thought slam poetry has gone the way of say, the golden age of MTV (video killed the radio star, as it were) then you should totally be ashamed of yourself. The heady and head-strong art form is alive and well, it turns out, and it's headed for another glorious iteration right here in Dirt City. That's because on Saturday, Dec. 9, Outpost Performance Space is hosting the Albuquerque Women of the World Poetry Slam Championship. ABQSlams brings together 10 of Burque's best women slam poets for a killer engagement in cadence and soliloquy. The winner of this grand competition will represent our humble burg at the International Women of the World Poetry Slam to be held March 14-17, 2018 in the epicenter of all hipness, which is a place called Dallas, Texas. Admission to this illuminating evening of rhyme and reason is $15 for students and $20 for the general, poetry-loving public. (August March)
