Qualification process
http://www.anthology.org/Programs/Programs_NPS.html

Since 1996, Anthology has coordinated a team of performance poets to attend the National Poetry Slam, a weeklong event sponsored by Poetry Slam, Inc. featuring the best poets from across the country in a single, performance event.

How do poets qualify
The process is open to any poet, and poets begin the process simply by showing up to one of the two qualifying events:

The Downtown Poetry Slam
The South Scottsdale Poetry Slam

Based on their attendance and performance, each poet earns points toward a cumulative total. As of April 30th, the 10 poets with the highest cumulative total qualify for the final event, the 2008 Anthology Slamoff.

If you attend the Downtown Poetry Slam, you may earn points as follows:

1 Attendance (not competing)
1 Hosting a Show
1 Each Round you qualify for as a poet competing (ie. 3 if you slam all three rounds in a three round slam).
2 (additional to rounds) if you finish 3rd in the slam.
3 (additional to rounds) if you finish 2nd in the slam.
4 (additional to rounds) if you win the slam.

If you attend the South Scottsdale Poetry Slam, you may earn points as follows:

1 if you slam in every round you qualify for.
2 additional if you finish 3rd in the slam.
3 additional if you finish 2nd in the slam.
4 additioinal if you win the slam.
Placement points are not cumulative.


Top 10 point totals as of April 30th reach a slamoff in May

Top 4 in slamoff constitute team, with alternates running in order from 5 through 10
