This is a special edition of the @the Beltway Poetry Slam Series.
The Pajama Jammie Jam is a love/erotica-themed slam, for everyone from professionals to novices, hosted by Pages.d Matam & Sim Ply Sherri
Tickets for this event $10.00
There will be THREE themed rounds of poetry:
Round 1: Cupid Ain’t Sh*t! (Love Sucks)
Round 2: Love is Grand! (Love Poem)
Round 3: Freak Me, Baby! (Erotic Round)
Cuts for each round will be dependent upon the number of participants
Each poem must be of the poet’s own construction.
Each poet gets 3 minutes 30 second (plus a ten-second grace period) to read one poem; if the poet goes over, points will be deducted from the total score.
A poet’s time begins as soon as they say anything on stage or engage the audience in any way.
The poet may NOT use props, costumes, or musical instruments. This includes the removal of clothing.
The poem can only be performed by one person.
Poets ARE allowed to read from paper and electronic devices such as laptops or cell phones. There will be no point penalty assessed unless it’s used as a PROP (as outlined above).
Finally, clothing is required; pajamas are optional. ;)
