2018 Women of the World Poetry Slam

The Women of the World Poetry Slam (WOWps) is a four day poetry festival celebrating women's voices, in which 96 of the best female-identified poets in slam will compete against each other in order to crown the Women of the World Poetry Slam champion. In this event, poets compete in preliminary competitions (referred to as “bouts”) over two nights. The poets with the top 14 scores from those days move on to Finals, where one poet is crowned the champion!

In addition to the competition, each day of the festival features poetry workshops, themed open mics, special nighttime events, and parties. Taking place March 15th - 17th in multiple venues in Dallas, the top poets will go on to finals at Majestic Theater to compete for the title of The 2018 Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion! Competition at WOWps is limited to poets who live their lives as women, which includes female assigned or identified individuals (including gender non-conforming or non-binary individuals) who are 18+ years of age.  All competing poets must be individual members of Poetry Slam, Inc.
