NYC Intangible Slam
1st & 3rd Thursday, September-May
Sidewalk Cafe
94 Avenue A New York, NY 10009
www. intangibleslam. com

We host two three-round open slams per month, on the first and third Thursday of the month. 

The top 4 finishers receive points
1st - 15 points
2nd - 7 points
3rd - 3 points
4th - 1. 3 points

There are three cycles, each consisting of four open slams (not including IWPS & WOWPS qualifiers).  The top 8 poets by points will be invited to the semi-final.  The winner and second-placed finisher move to the grand slam, with the winner guaranteeing her/himself a high draw in the grand slam.  The second placed finisher is allowed and encouraged to continue slamming throughout the season to secure a high draw as well. 

Poets, excluding semi-final winners, keep their point totals throughout the year.  At the conclusion of the third semi-final, the two highest scoring poets not already in the grand slam by means of a semi-final win or 2nd place will also be added to the grand slam, for a total of 8 poets competing for the team.
