Femme Poetry Slam POSTPONED (DATE TBA)
Add to Calendar
In celebration of Women’s History Month, Jersey City Slam is welcoming poets from all over the country to the Femme Slam. Inspired by the Women of the World Poetry Slam, an international, yearly event that brings thousands to different cities to compete, this slam is open to women and gender non-conforming poets only. The Slam itself is a competition but for those who want to share their work, there is an Open Mic as well. This slam provides a unique opportunity for marginalized voices in the community to speak up about current issues. Jersey City Slam was, is, and always will be committed to providing a platform for people to present their words in an accepting, safe environment. In the world of the #MeToo movement and the fight for equal rights, events like this are incredibly important. We encourage people to speak their truth, but also to listen and learn.
