who is on the team?

Each year, the top 10 ranked poets of the season (August-May) are invited to compete in a team selection slam. The top five scored poets of the event comprise the team.

What does being on the team mean?

Once on the team; poets will be expected to attend regular meetings where members create solo and group content to be taken to various tournaments throughout the summer, including regional art festivals, national slam competitions, and more.
