iWPS 2008 registration is open!!

Poetry Slam Inc. (PSi) and SlamCharlotte have partnered together to bring you the individual World Poetry Slam. The event will be held in Charlotte NC from 10-13 Dec. 2008.

iWPS is a 3 day poetry competition featuring 72 poets from across the world. The poets will compete for cash prizes, a chap book deal, and a year of bragging rights.

Register now for your chance to be one of the 72 poets from across the world battling for the oportunity to be the number one poet in the world.

For the first two months of registration 50 slots are reserved for individual representatives of certified PSI venues. Those are available on a first come, first served basis and only the SlamMaster may register the individual representative for his or her slam. The other 17 slots are available to any member of PSI who doesn't have regular access to a local slam, with preference given to those who live the farthest away from the site of the event and those living outside the host nation.

On November 1st, if there are still slots available, they are open to all members of PSI, regardless of location or venue representation on a first come, first served basis.

Additionally, there will be a "last chance" slam held the Wednesday before iWPS as well as an online video slam. The winners of these two competitions each get one slot with registration paid by PSi . The EC will also permit past iWPS champions to register without qualification through local slams until Oct. 31st. After Oct. 31st, if these slots are not taken, they will be open to all members of PSi regardless of location or venue representation on a first come, first served basis.

Get your application in as soon as possible BEFORE November 1 to assure yourself of the best chance to compete.

To learn more about iWPS and how to register, please go to www.individualworldpoetryslam.com.

They should register now, but they won't know for sure if they are in until after November 1.

I am currently living in Japan and would like to apply as a storm poet. I prefer to live off the grid, therefore I have no bank account or credit cards, hence online registration is out. Is there any way to reserve a spot and make payment upon arrival? Please take into account the distance that I am travelling. Any help would be appreciated.

Bryan, can't accept payment upon arrival, but you could mail a check or money order in the amount of your registration to PSi and I'll put you on the list. Should be done before November 1 to secure you best chance for inclusion. Let me know.
