The winner of Wednesday’s slam will go on to represent Vancouver in the Individual World Poetry Slam in Flagstaff, AZ between Oct 12-15th 2016, as well as the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam between April 20-April 30th 2017.

The rules for Wednesday’s slam are the same as usual. Please feel free to review these rules on the Vanslam Website. They will also be reviewed by the host at the beginning of the show.

The format for the evening will be as follows:
The slam will consist of 10 competitors (9 top scorers fro the summer season plus the winner of Monday’s last chance slam). There will be four rounds. All rounds are cumulative (your points from each round will be added together to determine your rank in the slam), all rounds will also be cut from below (those with the highest scores will move on). The order of the rounds will be

Round one – Ten poets perform – 1 min poems
Round two – Eight poets perform – 2 min poems
Round Three – Six poets perform – 3 min poems
Round Four – Four poets perform – 4 min poems

If there is a tie we will have a tie breaker round between the last two poets, this round will be a 3 min poem and will not be cumulative, but rather head to head.

Thank you to all those who performed on Monday night and best of luck to all poets competing this Wednesday!
