New guidelines for Poetry Slam Summer Season in Vancouver

Now until the start of September all the regular qualifying poetry slams on Monday nights have a new format.

There are now three rounds of poetry.
The 1st round has a maximum of 12 poets each doing 3 minute long poems.
The second round gets cut down to 8 poets doing 2 minute long poems.
The third round will be 4 poets competing in a 1 minute poem round.

There is a clean slate of scores each round. This means your scores don’t carry over round to round, there is no cumulative total throughout the night.

This new format is meant to challenge your writing and performance repertoire and prepare our poets for international competitions such as the Individual World Poetry Slam (IWPS) or the Women of the World Poetry Slam (WOWPS) which feature poetry skill sets that the new format encourages.

Sign up is still at 7 o’clock.
Show starts at 8pm.
5 judges and a room full of rock ‘em sock ‘em words.
It all still happens at
Cafe Deux Soleils
2096 Commercial Drive
