As the 2020 Poetry Slam season draws to its Grand Slam Final, Jersey City Slam prepares for an incredible event highlighting the seasons most slam prolific performers for one last chance to earn the opportunity to make the Jersey City Team. Throughout the 2020 season, close to 40 different poets competed for a chance represent Jersey City at the 2020 New Colossus Poetry Slam and other regional events. The first New Colossus Poetry Slam took place in December of 2019. It was the one of the largest gathering of poets in Jersey City history. Teams from the greater NJ/NY area shared poetry, competed and brought together community in a way that has not been seen since the demise of the National Poetry Slam in 2018. At this slam, the eight best poets in Jersey City will go at it for three rounds of performance poetry. The audience will play an active role as judges to determine the team. The top five poets to represent will represent Jersey City Slam in 2020. The overall winner of the slam will take home the Jersey City Grand Slam Championship Belt and all the bragging rights.
