It is finally here. Since the beginning of the slam season in August of last year, poets have been competing every month to earn a spot in the semi-finals. 18 poets made it into semi-finals and after two days of competitions, we are down to our top 8!
The poets competing in finals are as follows:
The Poet “i”
Finals will consist of a total of 9 poets. Where is that 9th poet coming from? Well, right before the finals competition, we will have a one round, last chance slam. Whoever receives the highest score in that slam will automatically be placed in finals. Sign-ups will be first come, first served on the list. Preference will go to poets that have competed previously in semi-finals.
And if all that isn’t enough to get you in the seats, our hostess for the evening will be none other than the Oakland Poetry Slam Host/Coach Nazelah!
We are not only making history in the city of Stockton, but we are putting the Valley on the map in the slam community. Please support this event because not only will it be a fantastic night of poetry, it will also be a fundraiser for the 2012 Pierced Ear Poetry Slam team and getting them to Nationals in Charlotte, NC.
See you there!
Admission - $8
