Interested in going to Nationals? Here's what you need to know:

The slam season starts in September and ends in March. All scores from those months will be tracked and added up. At the end of the slam season, the 12 poets with the highest scores of the season will compete in one "Team Choice" National Poetry Slam Qualifier. From that slam, the top 5 poets will have the chance to go to Nationals, which is Chicago, IL in 2018.

You must be a PSi member to compete in the Nationals Qualifier.

Please contact Samantha Slupski for questions about your standing during the slam season.
