Poetry slam open to all. Everyone goes up twice, two minutes thirty seconds each time. First time up you must do a poem which you have not used at a slam before. (And we will be asking the audience to confirm this!) Second time up you can do any old piece of expertly honed brilliance you've used a hundred times. Three top scorers go into the final. In the final it's new material we want again. Three minutes time limit. Prize money for winner, who also qualifies for the Scottish Slam Championships February 2016.
