Convergent Arts says
Convergent Arts throws down poetry TOURNAMENT STYLE, with a head-to-head slam at Fair Trade Community Kitchen at Downtown Phoenix Civic Space.

FEATURING: Beth May

The Convergent Arts Slam is every 2nd and 4th Thursday and is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. There are limited spaces to compete. Pre-register at http://convergentarts.org.

Doors and sign up begins at 7pm. Pre-registered poets must check in by 7:15pm to not forfeit spot. Lottery draw for remaining slots takes place at 7:30pm.



=============================================

BASIC RULES OF FORMAT

A head-to-head format means no randomly selected judges and no 0.0 to 10.0 scoring. The entire audience decides who moves to the next round.

The basic rules still hold up, though:

- 3 rounds of poetry with poets being cut for the 2nd and 3rd rounds;

- Each poem must be of the poet's own construction;

- Each poet gets three minutes (plus a ten-second grace period) to read one poem. If the poet goes over time, the mic will be snatched from the poet's grip;

- The poet may not use props, costumes or musical instruments.

- No nudity (but do we really even need to say this?)
