Watermark Poetry SLAM at Fozzies
Poets should prepare three original SLAM! poems, new in the last three years, never previously performed at a state or local event, and each under three minutes reading time.
Judges, selected from the audience, give each reading a score on a scale of 1 to 10. The poets with highest scores move forward to a second, then third round. The top three in the final round win cash prizes of $100, $75, and $50. Additional prize money may be distributed if available.
Spoken Word Poetry SLAMs are supported in part by the Bemidji Area Arts Endowment.
