Updated Omaha Slam Selection for NPS, iWPS, and WoW
« on: August 29, 2009, 09:05:19 PM »
Updated selection as of August, 2009:

To qualify for the NPS team: the top 3 finishers in the November and January-March poetry slams qualify for the April team finals (note: no poet takes 2 slots: if the January winner wins in February, that slot passes to February's 4th place poet, etc.). Team Finals are 3 rounds and qualifiers all must provide text of their 3 qualifying poems, 2 of which they cannot use at Finals (meaning they will need 5 total poems to make the team). Scores are cumulative in April, top 5 make the team. Ties are broken by either a haiku deathmatch or a 1 poem duel (audience decides by applause which to have). On any team member dropping, the slot is offered to the next-highest placing poet from the team finals. Should that list be exhausted and we need another team member, there would be a special slamoff to determine whom.

Our iWPS representative will be the top-placing participant in the September poetry slam who can pay their way to the event as we cannot offer reimbursement for this event's expenses.

WoW Finals are in December. Our WoW qualifiers take any female poet who wishes to participate provided they live within 60 miles of an Omaha or Lincoln poetry slam venue and have attended at least 2 Omaha or Lincoln poetry slams in the year preceeding the finals. The finals will be run with a special format TBA (determined by the number of participants, 3-7 rounds which include 1, 2, 3, and 4-minute poem rounds).

Updated selection as of October, 2010:

To qualify for the NPS team: the top 3 finishers in the December-March poetry slams qualify for the April team finals (note: no poet takes 2 slots: if the January winner wins in February, that slot passes to February's 4th place poet, etc.).

Should that list be exhausted and we need another team member, there would be a special slamoff to determine whom.

Our iWPS and WoW representatives will be the top-placing participant in the previous April poetry slam who can pay their way to the event as we cannot offer reimbursement for this event's expenses.
