Jersey City Slam

PSI Certified... Slam Approved!

Jersey City Slam is the first PSi (Poetry Slam, inc.) Certified Slam located in the heart of the artist community in downtown Jersey City. Founded by Slammaster Ben "Broken English" Figueroa and Victor Armooh in 2009, we are proud to provide a space for spoken word from all walks of life a chance to get on the stage and showcase their writing. We also offer a pre-slam open mic, open to all forms of entertainment. More than that, we are focused on growth within the community and fostering an environment where all performers are family.

I want to give a shout out to everyone at Grassroots Community Space for naming me, “Poet of the Month,” in their newsletter. BIG PROBLEM THOUGH, my name is spelt with a “K,” not with a “C.”

BTW I would love to see this haiku as an Occupy Wall Street poster. If you want to use it, get in contact with me and credit me on the poster. 

 Jersey City Slam wants to give a huge shout out to Mark (with a “k”!) congratulations on your continued publication success!

JERSEY CITY!!! You are so “from where I’m from!” Yeah, I know, different geography, but let’s be real: working class people got kinship in common no matter from where we hail. I’m so impressed with what you’re building and can’t wait to come back. Let’s workshop next time, and in general spend more time together. xoxo P.S. Everyone should visit you & you can tell ‘em I said so.
