SlamFind is a simple yet powerful, all-in-one web platform that connects poetry fans to the poets who move them and encourages everyone to get up, get out, and enjoy spoken word poetry the way it was meant to be-- live & in-person!
USE SLAMFIND TO:
-Automatically locate the 48 closest poetry events to wherever you are and get all the information you need to know to show up and enjoy some live poetry!
-Explore the global map to discover and contact poetry venues all over the world!
-Search your favorite poet across multiple YouTube channels at once to watch ALL their performance videos in one place, no matter what channel its posted on!
#1 IMPORTANT THING:
When using SlamFind to attend a live poetry event, always contact the venue beforehand to confirm the schedule listed is indeed accurate. Holidays, special events, last minute cancellations, etc... all these things are a logistical reality and it would be quite a shame to travel all the way to one of these events expecting an exciting night of live poetry and instead finding a empty parking lot.
HOW DO I ADD A VENUE NOT CURRENTLY LISTED?
Tap on the 'Menu 'button in the top-left corner of the Home page, then tap 'Add/Edit' and fill out the form. Once received, we will verify the information to make sure everything is accurate, then add the listing to our directory.
HOW DO I EDIT AN EXISTING LISTING?
*same as above*
HOW DO I GET MY OWN POETRY VIDEO ON SLAMFIND?
The videos listed here are actually posted by several different YouTube channels who film in a variety of different ways. Some film regularly at a single venue every week, while others are traveling orgs that film special events all over North America. We recommend reaching out the individual channels for information on their particular practices.
