URBANA POETRY SLAM! Admission $7. Open mic + slam + Featured Poet: Jeremy Richards

Wham Bam Slam

The URBANA POETRY SLAM is the resident poetry slam series at the Bowery Poetry Club, producing poetry slams every Tuesday night from September thru May, with a few special events during the summer.

Despite having won the National Poetry Slam Championship a record-breaking three times (in 1997, 2000, and 2002), it remains a very warm and inviting place to read poetry. Quirky even. Admission is regularly $7, but if it's the night of a semifinal slam, which may or may not be indicated above, it is $10.

Open slams lead to semifinal slams and ultimately to the finals on Saturday, May 3, 2008. If you're interested in slamming, it's a good idea to come one night and sign up for the open mic that precedes the slam, which is not competitive in any way. The featured poet is usually a well-known poet on the performance poetry circuit or someone who did well at the most recent National Poetry Slam. Urbana is booked for the entire season.
