Stand up and be heard at KL Poetry Slam, an on-the-spot three round poetry contest in which poets perform, recite, or read their works on a stage before an audience and under a time limit (usually three minutes each). The vital element in a poetry slam is that the poems are judged immediately afterward by five people picked randomly from the audience who award numerical values (from zero to ten) to each poem. Individual or group that scores the highest points, wins the competition.

Poets should prepare three poems (aprox three minutes in length each). The poem for the first round MUST contain a line from a John Keats poem as the slam falls on the death anniversary of the poet.
