Earth Day Poetry Slam in Partnership with Urban Poets Society Poetry Contest!

Welcome to our Earth Day Poetry Slam submission page! Using the form below, please submit your information and the piece you intend to read or recite during our Earth Day Poetry Slam on April 22, 2023.

The winner of the contest will receive a prize of $150 - you may submit a non-original piece of poetry for consideration but only original pieces that are performed will be eligible for the cash prize.

We believe that poetry can be a powerful tool to raise awareness and inspire action on environmental issues that affect our planet and our well-being. Whether you are a seasoned poet or a beginner, we encourage you to participate and share your voice.

Let's celebrate Earth Day together through the power of poetry!

Urban Poets Society’s mission is to create an organized support system; to uplift the community and the youth through mentorship and leadership programs. We believe that all mediums of art are poetry, and strive to give the voiceless a voice through their creations. We support our community and youth through scholarships, mental health support, and BIPOC centered opportunities to use the arts to enhance their lives, experiences, and abilities. We believe that when the community is given opportunities to contribute to their environment in a creative way, then they discover how valuable and indispensable their talents are to the world around them.
