Voltage. Is. BACK! Come kick the season off with us and slam your finished pieces or drop a few bars on the open mic! Make sure you bring a friend with you, too!
Slam participants must sign in before 6:30. First 10 poets to sign up are guaranteed to slam.
▪ Poets must perform their own original works.
▪ No music, costumes or props allowed.
▪ Poets should not make any introductions or preambles for their poem. They should simply speak their name into the mic and begin. Timing begins with the first word after the poet speaks their name.
▪ Time limit is 3 minutes, 30 seconds. A half point will be deducted for every 5 seconds past the time limit.
▪ In the event of a tie, poets should have a third poem prepared.
▪ Five judges will assign each poem a score of up to 10 points.
▪ The highest and lowest scores are dropped, leaving the remaining three scores
as the poet’s score. Thus, the highest score that any poet could earn is 30.
If you don't want to slam, feel free to sign up on the open mic list. The list is open for signup all night!
