Petty Weight Championship Slam


Valentine's Day presents a wonderful opportunity each year for our poets to get petty. Attend this event and witness the embarassing, the cringe worthy, the texas-sized tea that comes with failed past relationships.

What is a poetry slam?

A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Typically, the host or another organizer selects the judges, who are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets' content and performance. The high score and the low score are dropped and the rest are added to give the poet their score for that round. The scores are added across the rounds and a final score it tallied and the top 3 scores win cash prizes. 2 Rounds. For this slam, all petty-themed poems get a two point bonus. Poets will be prioritized by the number of petty poems they have and then it will be first come. first serve.
