This is a New Sh!t Slam
you can find the rules @
http://vanslam.ca/2018/10/18/vanslam-new-sht-challenge/
The prompt is: «let it break»

*Vancouver Poetry House strives to be a trans-friendly space.
*We encourage a scent-reduced environment, we ask the folks planning to attend, to be aware of the scented products (lotions, hairspray, laundry soaps, etc.) that they are bringing to Slam and how having a scent-reduced space allows people with related health conditions and sensitivities to attend.
*We have a wheelchair ramp in place for access to the stage.
*There are three single-stall, gender-neutral washrooms.
*The washrooms are not wheelchair accessible and do not have grab bars.

The format for the evening will be as follows:
The slam will consist of 12 competitors. There will be 2 rounds. All rounds are cumulative (your points from each round will be added together to determine your rank in the slam); all rounds will also be cut from below (those with the highest scores will move on). The order of the rounds will be:

Open mic — one poem with a max of 5 minutes
Our Feature -Kevin Spenst
Break — 7-10 minutes
First round — 3-minute poem
1-minute dance party
Second round — 3-minute poem

Doors at 7, show at 8. Get there early to get seats--before 7 PM! $6-$10 sliding scale at the door, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.

Please be kind to our volunteers. It's cash-only at the door, and they have to enforce capacity rules due to fire codes. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let the door volunteers know if you are leaving
