This is a closed list.

A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Typically, the host or another organizer selects the judges, who are instructed to give numerical scores (on a zero to 10 or one to 10 scale) based on the poets' content and performance. The high score and the low score are dropped and the rest are added to give the poet their score for that round. The scores are added across the rounds and a final score it tallied and the top 5 poets will advance to finals for a chance to represent Write About Now and Houston, Texas at the 2018 National Poetry Slam in Chicago, Illinois. 2 Rounds.

This Semifinal will feature is Chibbi, who will go on around 9:40 PM.
