What is a poetry slam?

A poetry slam is a competition where poets are critiqued by judges picked from the audience. These judges are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets’ content and performance. Individual poets will compete in multiple rounds with original pieces. The poets with the highest accumulative scores will move onto finals.
