Tournament

Women of the World Poetry Slam is a performance poetry tournament designed for individual competition, where poets will perform four poems of varying lengths during preliminary bouts. The top poets will go on to finals to compete for the title of, The 2016 Women of the World Champion!

WOWPS is also a poetry festival with events from morning until night that is open to the public. Tickets to attend are available now. You do not have to be a poet to attend, but if you would like to compete, please check requirements and registration.  As always, poetry slam is a volunteer run event and #WOWPSBK could always use volunteers.

Who can compete at WOWPS?

Competition at WOWps is limited to poets who live their lives as women. Qualified poets include female assigned or identified individuals who are PSi members and are 18+ years of age, including gender non-conforming individuals.

We are excited to poem with you in Brooklyn, NYC!
