Slam Poetry Rules

-Each poem must be of the poet's own original work.

- The poet may not use props, or musical instruments.
Costumes or clothing other than normal street wear will be deemed props.

- Each poet gets 3 minutes (plus a ten-second grace period) to read/perform one poem. If the poet goes past the grace period, points will be deducted from the total score.

- The three minutes begins as soon as the poet addresses the audience including introductions and poem titles. (Time taken to adjust the microphone will not be counted.)

- There will be five judges chosen randomly from the audience prior to the commencement of the event. Each judge will award points between 0 and 10 for each poem.

- Of the scores awarded, the high and low
scores are dropped and the middle three are added together, giving the poet a total score between 0-30.

- In the instance of a tie, a "slam off" will be called to determine final positions.
