Upstate Poetry Slam
Every Sunday
Coffee Underground
www.witsendpoetry.com
1 East Coffee Street
Greenville, SC 29661

We held a slam open to all (walk in and sign up at the door) on the last Sunday in September. The top five poets to win the slam-off (following standard slam rules, 3 round slam) became the Upstate Slam Team. Kimberly Simms Gibbs was the emcee.

If we need to replace a poet we will advertise via facebook, the website, etc and then take the champion from the next scheduled slam as listed on our website. www.witsendpoetry.com

Don't you have to have six open/qualifying slams first? (I know you do have regular slams there)

@Karen The six slams you are referring to are what keeps/makes you certified. Each city determines how they determine their team. As long as the public knows this is how Upstate does their finals this should be ok. PSi doesn't mandate how your team is formed.

Technically I just have to have a competition open to the public. We could have played Jenga - but we chose to have a poetry slam for our open competition ;D

Karen and Inkera - Love you two poetry godesses!
