Hear what local poets have to say as well as DJ Gravity and host, former Poet Laureate, Jessica Helen Lopez.

Poets from around the Albuquerque area have been coming far and wide to share their story on the mic! Now it's time to decide who will represent us throughout the Summer at the many different regionals around the country!

Burque Revolt is creating a team! And the top 12 poets who have slammed year round will be invited to compete to see who will earn their spot on the team!

The top 5 poets will emerge as the Burque Revolt Slam Team!

Featuring DJ Gravity and hosted by former Poet Laurette Jessica Helen Lopez! 
(Burque Revolt is an organization that connects youth, college and adults using poetry and a community that honors the stories/art/poetry of women, people of color, LGBTQ, youth and any and all intersections of those identities.)

Proceeds help poets travel to competitions in the summer.

Poetry that Doesn’t Stink

Cuts are being made at the Burque Revolt Poetry Slam Battle this Friday, April 26 from 7pm to 9pm at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway Blvd SE). Hosted by former Albuquerque Poet Laureate Jessica Helen Lopez, five poets will emerge out of a pack of twelve to constitute the Burque Revolt Slam Team by evening’s end. While this event is for all-ages and open to the public, it is not open to rhetoric that is homophobic, racist, classist or sexist. People who smell strongly of perfumes, essential oils, scented detergents or body products are also discouraged from attending so that people with chemical sensitivities can have things a little easier. Clean up your mind, clean up your body, then get on down to the Burque Revolt Poetry Slam Battle. Tickets are $10 (kids 12 and under are free). For more information see
