Albuquerque Poetry Slams - ABQSlams
Three monthly qualifying slams a month
MASPoetry (3rd Wednesday/month) & Final Friday (final Friday/month)
Winning Coffee Co., 111 Harvard SE, ABQ,NM 87106
Poetry & Beer (1st Wednesday/month)
Blackbird Buvette, 509 Central NW, ABQ,NM  87102

Each of our three slams has an open mic, a feature and a poetry slam. The poetry slams are two rounds, with prizes and points awarded to the top three poets. All poets, sacrificial poet and host get one point for participating. First place gets 20 points, Second gets 10 points, Third gets 5 points.

The slam season started in September 2009 and ended in March 2010. The Grand Slam Finals were April 3, 2010 at the Outpost Performance Space, 210 Yale SE in Albuquerque.

We have an overall point system to determine the top ten poets in the city. The top ten point-getters make the finals.

The top five poets from the 2010 Grand Slam finals comprise the Albuquerque Poetry Slam Team. The top poet earns the title of City Champion and will also represent Albuquerque at the international World Poetry Slam. If the slam champion declines to attend, the next highest ranking poet from the Team Selection Slam will be asked, and so forth. If no competitor in the Team Selection Slam is able to attend, an open slam of interested participants will be held to determine who will represent the venue.

WOWPS representative will be chosen from the winner ofouf ABQ-WOW poetry slam to be held in December.
