Phoenix Poetry Slam | June 22

June 22, 2017 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM UTC-7

10 poets in Phoenix will be competing for a $50 cash prize! Slam begins at 8pm. The slam will be hosted by Megaphone PHX!

Today’s Phoenix Poetry Slam from Lawn Gnome Publishing is the result of years of seeking talented new voices and promoting strong literary events. After Lawn Gnome Publishing closed its location on 5th Street and Roosevelt earlier this month, we were in need of a new venue!

Megaphone PHX stepped up and offered their art class and gallery space to the Phoenix Poetry Slam in order to continue both group’s mission of giving more people in Phoenix a platform to find and express their creative voice.

Early Bird tickets are $5 until June 14. Presales are $8 until June 21. Tickets at the door are $12 day of the event. The Phoenix Poetry Slam is an all ages, uncensored show that anyone can attend. Tickets can be purchased at and are expected to sell out.

This month’s competitors:

Derek Polivema
Alexis Patton
Shayla Brown
Tristan Marshell
Angelica Salazar
Sadie Lee
Douglas Becker
Brandon Holmes
The Klute
Francisca Gonzales

Special performances by Miki Devivo and more!
