Guelph Poetry Slam - Team Piece Edition!
REGISTRATION IS OPEN: https://
As it was such a big hit last year, we're going at it again! Guelph Poetry Slam is officially making our usual September slam a “Team piece” themed event.
A team piece is define as a poem in which 2-5 poets present it and has it scored by 5 random judges, much like a regular poetry slam. As a matter of fact, all the rules are the exact same, with the exception that EVERY poem must be a team piece.
For our audience nothing changes:
