Welcome to Austin Poetry Slam!

#AustinSlam

You have found Austin’s premiere showcase of slam poetry! We hold a show every Tuesday night at the Spider House Ballroom!

*****************************************************************************
This week we're co-hosting a silent auction fundraiser for the Speak Piece Poetry Project, Austin's youth slam team and teaching collective! It's part of their annual fundraiser - Sleigh the Stage! And an amazing group of poets from previous Austin youth slam teams will be our feature!

The Speak Piece Poetry Project is committed to the life changing advancement of middle and high school students in arts and education by teaching Austin's youth to be better readers, writers and thinkers. By providing workshop, performance, and collaborative opportunities, they're here to help cultivate critical thinking, student literacy and community leadership.

It's going to be a great night of poetry and last minute Christmas shopping! We'll have all kinds of auction items on display, including gifts from Alamo Drafthouse, Home Slice Pizza, and Ramen Tatsu-Ya to name a few!

Follow us and follow this event page for more information about what we'll be auctioning off!
