About The Competition
The Slam Arena will host a weekly “free to enter/ compete” Slam Poetry Competition. The competition consist of 3 rounds as follows
- The first round is decided based on the top 16 entries with the highest rating/ votes from other registered members of this site.
- The 2nd round will be judged by 3 of our experienced and in-house poets. This is to ensure the 8 poems that will proceed to the final round are quality poems that have content, depth, word play, proper use of words and a message.
- The 3rd and final round will contain the 8 poems as chosen by our judges. The winner of the slam will be determined by highest rating/ votes from other registered members of this site.
The winner of the slam gets to be our featured poet of the week and gets a small gift from the Admin :).
