UrbPoetry Slam Season

The 2012-2013 poetry slam season begins June 29th. Cash prize is $50 for first place plus prizes for 2nd and 3rd. To compete, poets must pay $5 at the door. The competition is audience judged. There will be 10 slams this season and you must earn 10 points to qualify for the Final on Friday, April 26th, 2013. Four winning poets will compete at the Southern Fried Slam in June 2013 and host the first ever Urb Poetry Regional Slam during the Legacy Anniversary weekend Friday, July 27th and Saturday, July 28th. Unlike last season, you can only earn one point from participating in other slams in St. Louis or 2 points for competing in the Saint Louis Poetry Slam at the Focal Point on Wednesdays. Poets who qualify for the final can continue to compete but will not be allowed to repeat poems in slams from that point forward. Below is the point breakdown for placing

  • First place = 5 points
  • Second place = 4 points
  • Third place = 3 points
  • Fourth place = 2 points
  • Fifth place = 2 points
  • All other participants = 1 point
