Welcome to UBC Slam Poetry!

Poetry. Lots and lots of poetry.


What is UBC Slam Poetry?

UBC Slam is an AMS affiliated club situated in the stolen and unsurrendered land of the Musqueam people. We are a proud community of poets, audience members, and consumers of tasty donuts that gather every other Friday online to create, share and connect.

SO! Please drop by and grace us with your presence, anyone is welcome! Share with us your words, your thoughts, your favorite donut flavor and your crippling existential dread about the futur- uh, I mean just your favorite donut flavor will do!

Catch us also organizing and holding special workshop events. They are designed to ease you into the world of poetry with prompts, laughter and company. These events are often led by professional, published poets across Canada too! So, you'll be hanging with the best.

Check out our event tab to find out more! Also, head on over to our social medias and send us your love (and your favorite donut flavor of course)!

See you around and much love, 

The UBC Slam Exec Team <3
