ABOUT THE INTANGIBLE SLAM
Intangible Slam is the newest PSI certified Poetry Slam Venue and the fourth slam team competing out of New York City at the national level. Our aim is to help reclaim the root of the oral tradition and to encourage the written gifts just as much as the spoken.
Intangible Slam seeks to produce top-level national slam teams that will compete regularly for the National Championship at the annual National Poetry Slam.
We stress a focus on originality and innovation as well as a balanced approach to spoken word which gives equal credence to both the word and the voice. We honor the soul of the artform as valuable beyond points and victories while still retaining a vigorous competitive spirit. We want to win. But we want to do it for the right reasons.
