Atlantic Center for the Arts says
Well, this is the 11th year of the Atlantic Center for the Arts’ WHAM! BAM! POETRY SLAM!, and we’re taking the show on the road to beautiful downtown Orlando at Gallery at Avalon Island.

The slam will take place on Thursday, April 9th at Gallery at Avalon Island, 39 South Magnolia Ave. The event is from 7PM to 10PM, but participants should be there by at least 6:30PM.

The first 20 to enter and pay the registration fee are in the event. The next ten to enter (they will not pay the registration fee until in the event) will be placed on the waiting list.

There is an opportunity for poets to sell their books at the event if they’d like and there will be a 30 minute open mic session, open to anyone, after the event (time providing).

RULES- Be prepared to read three poems of your own original work. There is a three minute time limit per poem. There will be three rounds starting with 20 poets in the first round, 10 poets in the second round, and 5 poets will compete in the final round for a winner-take-all cash prize of $200.
Three judges will be culled from the audience and paid $50 each.
Avoid pornographic imagery in your work for this event and anything most would find socially offensive. Use common sense. Maybe bring more than 3 poems in order to react to the flow of the event.
