The Copper State Poetry Slam is an annual event that hosts poetry slam teams from across the state of Arizona. Teams of four poets each will compete in a two day event to determine this year’s state champion. Slam is performance poetry set to competition, where random judges from the audience are selected to score poets on a scale from 0.0 to 10.0. Copper State Poetry Slam takes slam to the next level, incorporating teams that can put up to four poets on the stage at the same time. The team with the highest score at the end of four rounds wins. The event begins on July 26th with preliminary bouts and concludes on July 27 with the championship bout. Copper State Poetry Slam is also a festival that includes a variety of side events for poetry that are open to the public.
