I don't think that three extra bodies in each venue will cause the host city to have to book more venues, that I don't see happening. . . you have hundreds of poets at Nationals and you have around the same amount of venues booked to hold the poets. Denver has one of the most growing slam scenes in the world, I'm sure that they can handle 24 more poets and $3,600 doesn't sound like jack squat to me. . . especially when it can be added on to the prize and provide more cash for the women who probably lost or sacrificed so much to attend wowps.
