Are you a youth slammer and able to be in Toronto next week?
The event is taking place at the Tranzac on Saturday, Oct 15 from 2:30-4:30pm.
It will feature teams from Toronto (BAM!), Ottawa and Guelph competing in 2 bout 4×4 (4 teams, 4 rounds).
The 4th ‘team’ is actually not a team, but 4 or 8 slots that are open to ‘indie’ competitors. They will compete as individuals and be scored as such.
An example of this rotation might look like: r1-Toronto, Guelph, Ottawa, Indie A. r2-Guelph, Ottawa, Indie B, Toronto. etc etc.
This means that at the end of 2 bouts, we will have a team champion for the highest team cumulative score AND an individual champion for the highest single poem score. If we have 8 Indie competitors, it does mean that they’ll only have one slot to perform
Indie poets will be chosen via e-mail on a first come, first served basis as of Sunday, Oct 9th at 5pm. This means that the first up to 8 e-mail confirmations (the poet confirms/assures that they will be there) that I receive as of then will have a place in the competition. Up to another 8 will be on a waiting list.
E-mails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no registration fee
If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me.
