Historyedit

From 1990 to 2007, the National Poetry Slam held an "individual" poetry competition known as "indies" simultaneously with the team competition, with the poets earning the highest ranking individual poems during the first two days of competition moving on the semifinal and final rounds The first ever winner of this event was Patricia Smith, who would go on to win the Individual National Poetry Slam Championship title a record four times1

Starting in 2004, Poetry Slam Inc PSI decided to host a separate event called the Individual World Poetry Slam iWPS, in which solo poets not teams of poets competed for the championship title2 The first iWPS was held in Greenville, SC and the first iWPS champion was Buddy Wakefield3

Because of the popularity of iWPS and to avoid the confusion of two "individual" poetry slam titles being awarded ever year, Poetry Slam Inc decided to cancel the "indie" competition at the National Poetry Slam4

In 2016, the competition was held in Flagstaff, Arizona5

Formatedit

The tournament has two days of preliminary rounds, in which poets compete in 1, 2, 3, and 4 minute bouts After these 4 bouts are completed, the poet's rankings in each bout are added up and the top 12 poets of the tournament are invited to compete in the final round A 3 minute time limit is applied to the poems in the final round
