Mechanics for this year’s Slam:
3 ELIMINATION ROUNDS
Round 1:
Competing poets will perform a poem from a selection provided. Round 1 is purely based on the poet’s PERFORMANCE.

Round 2: Poets who make it to this round will perform an original piece. This round will be judged based on poem’s content, poet’s performance and impact.

Round 3: The judges will give the remaining poets a theme and 10 minutes in isolation to write a poem on the theme. They will be called in one by one to perform their fresh piece. This round will be judged on how well their original poem captures the theme, and on performance and on impact.
