MONTHLY SLAM AT MO'S NEIGHBORHOOD GRILL
The first and third Saturday of the month, at 2PM, Salt City Slam and Mo's Neighborhood Grill present open mic readings at Mo's Neighborhood Grill in Salt Lake City. The last Monday of the month at 8pm, we will hold a poetry slam, which is a three round competition to determine who is able to curry the most favor from the crowd.
Mo's Neighborhood Grill, 358 S West Temple, Salt Lake City - $5 for the slam!
We have a point system for participation in open mics and placing in slams. At poetry slams, held once a month at Mo's Neighborhood Grill on the last Monday of the month, 10 people will be allowed to participate. 27 points will be awarded for winning a slam, 14 for second, 9 for 3rd, 5 for 4th and 2 points are awarded for everyone else. In addition, one point will be awarded for every round of open mic a poet reads at during our weekly open mic.
These points will determine the top contenders for our finals that will vie for our team slots and the opportunity to participate in the 2010 National Poetry Slam. If one of the qualifiers after this selection is completed cannot attend NPS, we will select a replacement based on where individuals finished in finals.
The iWPS representative for Salt City Slam will be the slam champion (winner of the Team Selection Slam) from that year. If the slam champion from that year declines to attend, the next highest ranking poet from the Team Selection Slam will be asked, and so forth. If no competitor in the Team Selection Slam is able to attend, an open slam of interested participants will be held to determine who will represent the venue.
WOWPS representative will be chosen from the winner of an open slam competition.
