We are ready for the first WPS Runner-Up Championship! Join us to support all 26 poets around the world!
We are very excited to introduce you to the new
World Poetry Slam Runners Up Championship!
This is an innovation of the World Poetry Slam Organization starting this year and we are delighted to give a second chance to a poet who came second during the finals of their national championship and offer them to participate in the World Poetry Slam Championship in September with the national champions.
This event will take place online from March 19-21, 2022 and will consist of 2 semi-finals and a final on March 21, which is World Poetry Day. The 10 best from both semi-finals will pass to the Finals. The winner will be invited to participate in the World Championship in September. We invited 48 countries from around the world to participate and 29 of them replied to our invitation and 26 videos were accepted.
