THE RULES ARE SIMPLE:

1. POETS NEED 3 OF THEIR OWN ORIGINAL POEMS THAT DO NOT GO OVER 3 MINUTES EACH. 

2. THERE IS A 1/2 POINT PENALTY FOR EVERY 10 SECONDS OVER 3 MINUTES.

3. THERE ARE THREE ELIMINATION ROUNDS GOING FROM 17 POETS TO 8 TO THE 3 FINALISTS. 

4. NO COSTUMES, PROPS OR RECORDED MUSIC.

5. THE MOST IMPORTANT RULE FOR POETRY SLAMS IS TO LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR.

6. IF YOU DON'T GET PICKED FOR THE FIRST 17 WE HOPE YOU STAY FOR THE FUN AND IF YOU GET CUT IN THE FIRST ROUND DON'T TAKE IT OUT ON THE JUDGES. THE AUDIENCE WILL TAKE CARE OF THAT. AND STAY TO ROOT ON YOUR FELLOW POETS.

 

POETS ARE JUDGED ON BOTH CONTENT AND PRESENTATION BY JUDGES PICKED RANDOMLY THE NIGHT OF THE SLAM
