The slams are open to everyone to compete, up to 10 poets per slam.
1st place - 5 points
2nd place - 4 points
3rd place – 3 points
Sacrificial & Participation (no advancement beyond round 2) – 1 point
The purpose of our point system is to award both the slam finalists and regular participants/sacrificial poets.
Slam season runs from January – July, with top 5 point placements automatically making the team for the following season.
Team commitment / rehearsals run September – August.
If any of the Top 5 decline the team invitation (or drop out), the invitation is extended to the next highest point ranking poet.
**Any team member who drops out of the current season after joining the team is suspended from team eligibility for following season.**
