Gothenburg Poetry Slam is organized by local poets and poetry lovers. We arrange poetry slams, open mic nights, poetry hangouts, fanzine printing and workshops. Your ideas are always welcome, and if you want to get active, give us a shout at gbgpoetryslam@gmail.com.

Our poetry slams take place at Musikens Hus in Majorna. Each Fall and Spring we organize four slams, wrapping up each season with a seasonal final as well as a yearly final where four poets are selected to go to the National Poetry Slam Championship (which takes place in different cities each year, usually in May).

Any poet is welcome to compete, in any language or mix of languages. If you want to sign up, send us an email at gbgpoetryslam@gmail.com.
