The Toronto Poetry Project is proud to present our annual all-female slam which determines who will represent Toronto at the Women of the World Poetry Slam (http://wowps2015.com/) tournament in Albuquerque, New Mexico from March 18-21, 2015!
Poets have been contacted to compete in this invite-only slam (since female poets need to have slammed at least twice to qualify). See list of slammers in the comments.
The format is a bit different to prepare you for WOWps.
(A 10 second grace period for each round still applies.)
Maximum poets = 12
Round 1 = 3 minutes
Round 2 = 1 minute
Half of the poets compete in the second half.
Round 3 = 2 minutes
Half of that group go to next round.
Round 4 = 4 minutes
*All other standard slam rules apply.
SCORES ARE CUMULATIVE BETWEEN ROUNDS.
