Throughout the year, over 100 poets have slammed at Write About Now. We have narrowed that number down to the top 10 poets, who will compete in our finals for a chance to represent Write About Now at the 2018 National Poetry Slam in Chicago, Illinois.
This is a closed list.
This Final poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Typically, the host or another organizer selects the judges, who are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets' content and performance. The high score and the low score are dropped and the rest are added to give the poet their score for that round. The scores are added across the rounds and a final score it tallied. The top 5 scoring poets will make the nationals team. 2 Rounds.
This Final will feature Ebony Stewart, who will go on around 9:40 PM.
