What’s involved in CIPS?
Poets competing in CIPS are engaged in a solo poetry slam competition. Competitors perform in two slams on two different nights, with different time limits in each round. In the first slam, they perform 4-minute and then 1-minute poems. In the second slam, they perform 2-minute and then 3-minute poems. The top-ranked poets after preliminaries compete in CIPS Finals: a three-round slam of 3-minute poems that whittles the top 12 down to the top 4, until we determine the 2019 CIPS Champion!!!
Storm Poets registration costs $75. Aside from securing you a spot in the competition, registration nets you a Verse Festival Pass as well as FREE entry into ONE workshop of your choice.
