PxL logo 2012

The Poetix Lounge (PxL) is a non-competitive, thematic event putting the widest range of poetic voices on stage.

The slam format has been the primary outlet for performance poets to share their talent with audiences across the country for many years. Not every poet finds value in competition or the slam format judging their work on a scale of 1-10.
The PxL allows veteran and emerging talents to take stage without the pressure of earning scores, so they’re free to experiment, take more risks, and be more soft spoken if that’s their style. Through the dozens of thematic events, the Lounge expands the reach into the talent pool and results in a truly diverse range of poetry every time.
