Now’s your chance to replicate the magic of the National Poetry Slam. Squads of three poets will perform for the title of first ever squad slam champions — each poet has one of the three rounds and can deliver an independent or group piece with their slot. Scores will be tallied and the top squad (out of 90 points) will be crowned champion.

The squad slam will also feature an epic prize for the winning squad, courtesy of our sponsor partners at Hugo House: each of the winners will receive credit to take one free writing course!

Sign your entire squad up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1C9tfg4rDdMaxxhImXgFyQRwoo4qEQKXTUhxlb9Do3Fc/edit?usp=sharing

We will take up to eight (8) squads, first come, first serve, and poets may sign up on the night of the show, if spots are available. Poets who wish to participate but don’t have a specific squad in mind can post here or email us at raincityslam@gmail.com; the board can help match you up for squads of your own!
