Description

Today’s Phoenix Poetry Slam at Lawn Gnome Publishing is the result of years of seeking talented new voices and promoting strong literary events.

10 poets in Phoenix will be competing for a $250 cash prize! Slam begins at 8pm. The slam will be hosted by Aaron Hopkins-Johnson.

Want to compete? Send an email to lawngnomepublishing@gmail.com with 'POETRY SLAM' in the subject line. We will send you an invoice for the $10 registration fee.

Here are the rules:

1) Poetry must be original content
2) No music or props allowed
3) No nudity
4) Poems over three minutes and ten seconds will be penalized .5 for every ten seconds overtime.
5) Five judges will be selected from the audience to judge each poem from 0.0 to 10. We drop the high and the low and add up the remaining three scores for each poet.
6) The first round will consist of the first 15 poets to sign up, second round will be the top scoring 5 poets, and the final round will be amongst the top three until a winner is crowned!

Ticketing

Early Bird Tickets are $5 until November 30.
Presales are $6 until December 14.
Tickets at the door are $9.

The Phoenix Poetry Slam is an all ages, uncensored show that anyone can attend.
