This slam will continue our selection process for our 2021 Exit 36 Poetry Slam Festival representative to the event happening in Pompano Beach from December 9th thru December 11th! MACDeLand Slam and it's sponsors will pay registration in full for the champion! MACDeLand Slam and its sponsors may also assist in offsetting costs of lodging for the champion.
Up to 12 poets per qualifier will enter but only half the field will survive and earn a berth to our final Grand Slam in September! Poets may RSVP to ensure a spot or sign-up the day of the event if spots are available! RSVP by emailing your desire to compete in the qualifier to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This slam will be two rounds of 3 minute poems with a 10 second grace period. Scoring is cumulative. First round by random draw and second round high score to low. Top half of the field advance to Grand slam September 14th! Poets who do not advance may be chosen as alternates to Grand Slam if berths become available.
Open Mic between rounds and afterwards, time permitting! This event sponsored by The Blind Pig, MainStreet Art & Culture Slam of DeLand, and the Creative Happiness Institute.
