The top 12 poets from prelims advance to this bout. Who will claim the title of 2013 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion?
Poets in finals will be performing three-minute poems. The first round will consist of twelve poets. The top seven highest-scoring poets will move on to the second round. Then, the top four highest-scoring poets from the second round move on to the third (and final) round. The highest-scoring poet in the third round becomes the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion. Itâ€™s a blank slate each round, not cumulative score. The order in each round is determined by random draw.
