The event creator says
One year ago, on September 25, The S.A.F.E.! Words! Poetry! Slam! ushered in a new era of Slam in Orlando, by becoming the city's first active, PSI-certified venue in 5 years! Since then, we've sent Team Olympus to The National Poetry Slam and become the first venue in history to send a rep to The Woman of The World Poetry Slam! Now, a year later, we've gone from a monthly showcase to appearing twice a month with one regular-format slam, and one specially themed event!

This month, we celebrate our birthday with the first annual S.A.F.E.! Words! Haiku D'Etat! with 8 poets compete in a king-of-the-hill / bracket-style battle:

***

FIRST TIER / PRELIMS / WHITE BELT LEVEL: 8 poets compete in 4 head-to-head bouts. Three judges picked randomly from the audience will vote on their preferred haiku based on a flag system. The four haikusters who win the most rounds in their bout out of 5 rotations, advance to the semi round! All 8 poets who sign up to compete, get 5 points towards the season's slam rankings!

SECOND TIER / SEMIS / PLAID BELT LEVEL: The advancing 4 poets compete in two head-to-head bouts. The two poets who win their best-of-7 bouts, advance to the final round! All haikusters who advance to semis get an additional 2 points towards their season's rankings, for a total of 7 points towards the season! Lastly...

TOP TIER / FINALS / BLACK BELT LEVEL: The two poets left standing at the mountaintop duke it out for the title of The S.A.F.E.! Words! Grandmaster! Slamurai! Champion! in an epic, knock down, drag out, best-of-17 round match-up. Only one will win! Only one will remaining standing once the smoke has cleared! And to top it off, the winner of our event gets a whopping 10 POINTS added to their 5 points for competing and 2 points for advancing to semis, for a total of 17 points towards the S!W! season in addition to mystery prizes!!
