Moz Slam is a Battle of Poetry, practice around the word which has in its base several rules that involve the performance and original poetry of its participants, time-limited to 3 minutes for their presentations.
These performances are then judged by selected members of the audience or by a panel of judges consisting of five people, who score each presentation from 0 to 10, with the highest and lowest notes being excluded.
There are no appropriate styles or themes; there are several possible languages, which vary with the diversity of the participants that are part of this movement. The Moz Slam aims to attract, in addition to poets, spectators, and writers who often have little intimacy with “traditional poetry.”
The intention is that the events bring together young writers from different perspectives and styles, from poets, writers, musicians, rappers, journalists, students, etc., in recitals that will have the active participation of the public, choosing the best performance and presented text.
