Founded by Jacob Winterstein and Alyesha Wise (“Ms. Wise”), this slam event was created to improve the writing and performance of the poets in Philadelphia and to entertain the heck out of a really big audience.

The first Friday of each month from October-May at PhilaMoca at 12th and Spring Garden Streets we will bring you an amazing out-of-town featured poet, a fantastic local spotlight artist and a three round elimination slam.

A poetry slam is a competition between poets performing original work judged by members of the audience.
