General Discussion / NPS 2014 MCs and Bout Managers!
« on: June 07, 2014, 06:38:30 AM »
NPS 2014 is only a few short months away. It's in Oakland, CA on August 5 - 9, and represents the first time we have been able to go to the west coast since we were all babies.

So if you are thinking of going, but not competing, I'd love to have you come and experience the exquisite stress that is volunteering to run bouts. No need to decide this minute, I can wait until you lose your qualifier because of some clearly terrible and drunk judges.

When you are ready - click this internet hyperlink - http://lists.poetryslam.com/?p=subscribe&id=3and add yourself to the list. Once you do, I'll send you some more information periodically as NPS draws near.

Thank you.
-Erik Daniel

Yes, there will be new forums, but that won't happen right away. Once the switch happens, these forums will become read-only, so anything we post here won't go away.

General Discussion / The NPS 2013 Call for MCs and Bout Managers
« on: June 17, 2013, 07:24:17 AM »
If you are an experienced and energetic showperson, PSi wants your help.

If you lost your NPS qualifier but still want to experience the awesome show that is NPS, be an MC !

If you have been thinking, "How do I get involved in the organization ?" Be a Bout Manager !

If you have Bout Managed for PSI before and are looking to step up to MC, now is your chance!

Requirements: PSi membership (You can get this here on the web site!), A lot of Slam experience, a great attitude, the ability to show up in Boston on time (it's important!), working knowledge of NPS rules a plus. Prior WoWPS, IWPS or NPS experience is valued but not a requirement.

There are a limited number of spots for MCs and bout managers at NPS so get your name in early. You will receive a volunteer pass to the event which gives you access to all day and evening events (not always including the finals), just like the poets, and possibly more stage time than the poets themselves !

There will be daily meetings for MCs and Bout Managers starting on Tuesday.  Attendance at the meeting is mandatory, if you can't make the days meeting, you can't work that night.  I strongly recommend you attend 1 of the 2 NPS Orientation meetings, so you are, you know, oriented.

Where: The National Poetry Slam will be in Greater Boston, MA.
When: August 13-17, 2013
Who: All the cool kids (and also me)

I'm sorry about that everyone.

As Jesse stated, the form is fixed, and will now accept poets up to 150 years of age.

Draw updated with venues. Links are the same. I also fixed an error with a team name (sorry OM Center Poetry Slam!).

Did you know that the Slammaster's council updated the NPS Rules in Denver this year?  Make sure you understand the rules before you send up your poets.

I suggest you pay particular attention to the section on "Group Pieces". Don't lose NPS because you sent up the wrong poet!

If the majority of Slammasters vote against changing events to align with your thoughts on scoring, how will you react?
