Buy a drink/support the venue to sign up!
Sign Up at 8pm, Slam starts at 9pm!!
Two rounds!
Round One, 9 poets!
Round Two, Top 5 poets, Best poem wins!

HERE'S THE CATCH! YOU HAVE 5 MINUTES TO PERFORM EACH POEM! AFTER 5 MINUTES, THE HOST WILL STOP THE POET USING AN AIRHORN. AT THIS POINT, THE POEM WILL THEN BE JUDGED AS USUAL!
Poets are encouraged to go over the usual 3 minute time limit, but will be stopped if they attempt to go over 5 minutes. Time will not disqualify any poet in the slam, nor will any poet recieve any time penalty during this slam!!

Winner gets $50!!!

Our headliner will be Liz Prisley!
Liz Prisley is a spoken word poet and educator who has toured colleges throughout the US and poetry venues in cities like Tallahassee, Atlanta, Fayetteville, Little Rock, and Orlando. She represented the Tampa Bay area at the Women of the World Poetry Slam in 2013, 2014, and 2017. In 2013 she was also the winner of the Brenda Moosey Women of the World Video Slam. In 2015 Liz was named Black on Black Rhyme Tampa’s Poet of the Year. The same year, with fellow poet Dennis Amadeus, she founded the Tampa Bay Poetry Workshop Series, a bimonthly spoken word writing and performance workshop open to the public. By 2016 this grew into The Speak Tank, a nationally certified poetry slam venue and monthly workshop series.

We will have poetry-tag after the slam.
