Welcome to Austin Poetry Slam!
You have found Austin’s premiere showcase of spoken word poetry! We hold a show every Tuesday night at the Spider House Ballroom on 29th Street (see the map).
Our show is $6 on regular slam nights, and occasionally $8 or $10 on special nights, such as Quarter Finals, Semi-Finals, IWPS Finals, WOWPS Finals, Slam Bowl or the Nationals Slam Scrimmage.
Also, this happened:
Congratulations to the 2015 Austin Poetry Slam Team, and the 2015 Austin Neo-Soul Slam Team, taking home 1st place and 3rd place respectively in the 2015 National Poetry Slam Group Finals!!!!
Congratulations also to the Austin Slam team (w/ special guest Amir Safi) for winning the 2015 Southern Fried Poetry Slam!
