The event creator says
Every month, S.A.F.E.! Words! presents two slams: One with a regular format, one with a special theme.

November's special event slam is the return of THE ATHENA ARENA, our annual qualifier to send a representative to The Women of the World Poetry Slam 2016, this year in Brooklyn, New York!

This bout is open exclusively to all poets who are or who identify as female. The list will be capped at 12 poets with no eliminations. The winner will be determined at the end of the night by cumulative scoring between four rounds each with a time limit of 4 minutes, 1 minute, 2 minutes, and finally, 3 minutes, respectively. Each round will include a 10 second grace period.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This will be a LOOOONNNNNN GUH slam, including a male poet who stands in solidarity as a sacrifice poet at the start of each round. So ladies, please don't commit to signing up unless you are gung ho about repping S!W! at WOWPS.

As with all special events, competitors will receive hella points to towards their season's rankings for showing up. Every poet who signs up automatically gets 5 points, plus an additional point for each poet they outrank. The winner of the night get rewarded an additional 10 points for their triumph and commitment to representing the S.A.F.E.! Words! house and brand on a global level.

Since we have a no-repeat rule for all slams in our regualr season, this rule still stands, and every poem by every competitor in the final 3-minute round MUST be a poem that has never been slammed on The Milk Bar stage -- the idea being that everyone will come with a new poem to use in their regular arsenal. Female poets who slammed in this seasons BATTLE FOR OLYMPUS IWPS qualifer may use the same poems they used for the 4, 1, and 2 minute rounds, but MUST have a brand new, un-slammed poem for their final 3-minute round.

May the best Slamazon win!!
