4th Saturday of every month
Cup of Joe
353 West 200 South
Salt Lake City, UT

We have a point system for participation in open mics and placing in slams. A poet get a point each time they read at an open mic at either the Cup of Joe open mic or the Cafe Marmalade (361 North 300 West, Salt Lake City) open mic, starting September 1 of every year. At poetry slams, held once a month at Cup of Joe on the fourth week of the month, 8 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 those finishing 5-8th.

These points will determine the top contenders for our finals in Feb/March that will vie for our team slots and the opportunity to participate in the 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.

There is currently no established process for WOW or IWPS.

These points will determine the top contenders for our finals in April that will vie for our team slots and the opportunity to participate in the 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.
