Jersey City Slam


Union Square Slam is committed to exposing all the poetry this city has to offer. We want communities to merge and form into bigger communities. For this show we are happy to have the great literary/slam organization Jersey City Slam.

Here’s a little more about JC:

Jersey City Slam was founded in 2010 and has since become a pillar in New Jersey’s poetry community. J.C. Slam provides a platform for New Jersey’s best poets to showcase their skills and talent on a national level. It also is a way for the community to connect to Jersey City’s vibrant and thriving art community. By putting the power in the hands of the judges picked at random from the audience J.C. Slam lets the community decide who represents Jersey City at the annual National Poetry Slam, Women of the World Poetry Slam and the Individual World Poetry Slam. Jersey City Slam is a live event that offers local performers to participate in the open mic segment and judge Slam poets performances.
