Folks, we are back with our annual Women of the World Poetry Slam Qualifier to see who will rep Toronto Poetry Slam at the WOWPS event in Dallas in March!
The winner of this uniquely-formatted slam gets the door $ and to rep TPS, so the stakes are high!
Hosted by Alyssa Ginsburg, this show will also feature a short set by Alessandra Naccarrato (bio coming soon).
Doors 7:30/ show 8pm
$10 cover. All ages. Open mic available to begin the show.
The show is formatted differently for competing poets than our usual Drake slams, mirroring how WOWPS works:
Round 1 = 3 minutes
Round 2 = 1 minute
Half of the poets compete in the second half.
Round 3 = 2 minutes
Half of that group go to next round.
Round 4 = 4 minutes
(A 10 second grace period for each round still applies. *All other standard slam rules apply. A poem doesn’t need to reach the time limit, any poem that goes over the time limit will have deducted points.)
Competitor list coming soon.
Accessibility at the venue:
There are several stairs to get into the Supermarket. Once inside, everything is on the same level. Bathrooms do not include wheelchair accessible washroom.
