Poetry Slam! Santa Barbara is being sponsored by, and hosted at, The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara this month!

Please Join Santa Barbara's finest Spoken Word Poets as they square off in this exciting monthly competitive performance poetry event! All poets bringing all forms of ORIGINAL poetry are encouraged to attend. Poetry Slam Santa Barbara is a monthly poetry competition that invites poets and their original poetry of all genres to attend and be a Voice of our Community and for our Community.

We will ask 5 audience members to be judges and score each poet Zero through ten. Judges are to judge 50% on the poem and 50% on the performance! The scores are tallied, and the top three poets will come back at the end of the night to compete for bragging rights and for cash prizes! We will have Master of Spinning Vinyl DJ Gryphn to keep the mood and beat rolling throughout the evening, as well as one or more featured Poets and a featured musical artist to wow you with their best!

NOTE For Poets: Bring your friends to cheer you on!

  • This is not an open mic - original poetry only
  • No instruments or musical accompaniment allowed
  • 3 Minute Time Limit per poet, with a 1-point deduction from cumulative score for each ten seconds a poet goes over
  • 3 - 5 Audience member judges will judge using Olympic style scoring (8.5, 9.5 etc.)
