The World Poetry Federation (WPF) is the first competititve poetry league to combine the art of perfromance poetry with the aestethics of professional wrestling.

Competitors are grouped into divisions based on performance experience (Rookie, Intercontinental, Heavyweight) and type of bout (Tag Team, Short Form, Freestyle). All competition is head-to-head poetic battles(tm) with audience members deciding who who each round.

The WPF's mission? Make spoken word FUN again!
