2014 Individual World Poetry Slam

The Individual World Poetry Slam (iWPS) is a four day poetry festival, bringing together 72 of the best performance poets from North America, as well as poets from other parts of the world, to compete for the championship title. In this event, poets compete in preliminary competitions (referred to as “bouts”) over two nights. The poets with the top twelve scores from those days move on to Finals, where one poet is crowned the champion!
