The Beltway Poetry Slam & Poetry Slam, Inc (PSi) are proud to present the Individual World Poetry Slam (iWPS) to the nation’s capital.


Ninety-six award winning poets will compete over 4 days for the championship title. The event will bring world acclaimed feature performers, poetry and performance workshops, specialty slams, open mics, and events for all ages to Washington D.C.In this event, poets compete in preliminary competitions (referred to as “bouts”) over two nights. The poets with the top twelve scores from those days move on to Finals, where one poet is crowned the champion!


This event would not be possible without the major contributions of Busboys and Poets, the DC poetry community, and supporters of the DC arts community at-large.


Tickets range from $5 for individual events to $60 for a full festival pass. The pass includes access to all workshops, events, and finals.


This is a great opportunity for networking, learning more, and witnessing some of the world’s greatest poets in competition!
