How slam sign-up works at the TYPS Monthly
Problem: there are more slammers than we have room to accommodate.
This is a good problem to have! It means the TYPS is hot!

Solution: we can accept 15 poets in the competition. Here’s our system for sign-ups:

  1. If you arrive at 5pm for the Workshop & you want to slam, you’re automatically in
    (up to 10).
  2. At 6:30, five people are added to the list on a first-come, first-served basis.
  3. Everyone else present has their names thrown into a hat. We’ll fill up the rest of the slam slots with poets whose names are drawn at random.

This is the most fair system we’ve been able to think up. Suggestions welcome!
