There is no entry fee for participants or observers. Complimentary coffee and dessert will be available for patrons.  

To compete, poets need to bring three original poems and are not allowed to use props, costumes, or music. Five judges will score performance and writing on a scale from 7.5 to 9.9. The lowest and highest scores will be dropped; the three remaining scores will be averaged.
