Louisville 2022 Update
As we start gearing up for next year’s festival, we would be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge all of the hard work that was put in by the Louisville host city coordinators. Many thanks are in order to Lance Newman, SteVon Edwards and their team for putting together our first in-person festival, since Fayetteville, NC in 2019. Thank you for everything!
More thanks are in order to our community, who came from all over the country to compete in our yearly tournament! It was great to see slamily, and to connect with new poets that we have welcomed into our family!
A huge thank you to ALL OF THE VOLUNTEERS who made sure every bout ran as smoothly as possible!
Lastly, congrats to our winners! Everyone was on fire this year!
