Welcome to a new kind of slam. Bowery Poetry is proud to present Monday Finals - a college slam geared towards student collegiate slammers hosted by Eduardo Andres Rios Pulgar

There are slam venues all over the city, but for many college slammers, Universities are where all their slamming happens. We aim to change that by bringing college Slammers and their work to a new platform that is just for them. We are employing Grudge Slam rules, where we do away with the points, and leave all the love and the clapping for all the poets. There will be random draw pairings of the contestants and the judges will use colored paddles to choose a winner of every bout in lieu of points.

The points are not the point, the point is if you really believe the points are not the point, then do away with points altogether
