THE LONGEST RUNNING POETRY SLAM IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA!
Bringing you some of the best poetry from across the world, every week, since 1999.
This is it, folks: the end of the line, the finishing blow, what we’ve been building towards all year. On the 15th, the Berkeley Slam is thrilled to present our 2015 Grand Slam Finals. The top poets of the year battled for blood at semifinals over the last two weeks, and now the best of the best will compete to see who will be on the 2015 Berkeley Slam team. Who will get through semifinals and earn their way into finals? Who will make the team? And, most importantly, who will be the 2015 Grand Slam Champ and win the coveted golden macaroni belt? It’s our biggest and best show of the year, so don’t miss it!
Line-up TBA! Come to semifinals and find out!
