3. Three minute time limit (plus a ten second grace period) to read one poem, with a one- half point deduction per each ten seconds over.

 

4. No props, costumes, musical instruments, or electronic devices may be used.

 

5. Scoring is on a 10 point scale; high and low scores will be dropped, giving poets a total score of between 0 and 30 points.

 

6. All poets must sign themselves in by 7:00 pm--sharp!

 

7. No selling or distributing of poetry chapbooks or other printed materials.
