The Drake Hotel - 1150 Queen Street West

We're now a two-round slam!

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 8:00pm

Maybe you've heard through social media, and yes, it's true, TPS is now a two-round slam! That means there will be no third round, and poets will only require two poems for the night.
Scores will be cumulative rather than clean slate. Still 12 poets max in the first round and 6 in the second round.

We're back at the Drake Hotel on March 29 featuring Brandon Wint and hosted by Ian Keteku.
