Want to win a spot on our team and go on a poetry tour next summer? Come to our third qualifier and bring your best poetry!
Poets will compete for a spot on our National Team. The top two in every Qualifier go on to the semifinals, and the top two of each Semifinal goes on to our Grand Slam in the spring!
But this year, what you win will be different. The top four poets in the Grand Slam will be our national team, and will get a special prize: a poetry tour of the west coast! We’ll be paying for transportation, hotels, and will arrange the venues. We’ll help you make chapbooks and any other merch that you want to sell if you want help. We’ll provide assistance to help you thrive during the tour. And hopefully you’ll come back from the tour having made new friendships and connections throughout the poetry community!
If the idea of a poetry road trip sounds awesome, come to our first qualifier this week and compete!
