OPEN and MASTER
(prizes for the winner of each division)
The OPEN division begins the evening. It encourages young people and
newcomers to try slamming.
Following is the MASTER division, which challenges seasoned slammers to
compete on a higher level.
All poetry must be original, and the quality of the performance is as important
as the quality of the writing. Each poet has a time limit of three minutes. Poetry
Slams are pared-down events: poets are not permitted to use props,
costumes, or music. Judges are selected at random from the audience.
