Hi, all! I am hosting a Limerick Slam at NPS. This is the first time this has been an official event, and it will take place Wednesday night (after the bouts) at Wild Tymes.
Lots of people are asking how many Limericks they will need to compete, but I don't know until I see how many people sign up. It will be limited to the first 16 participants, head-to-head style, so you'll need at least five (assuming the last round is best of three). However, if there are only 8 participants, we'll make every round best of three, so you'd need at least six. I recommend preparing at least five in advance, and then writing addition verse once you see your competition.
Here's the twist: we won't set up the brackets in advance. Instead, I will pull a poet from the hat, and that poet gets to challenge any other poet who has not yet read in that round. So, say you have a bunch of Limericks about Scott Woods, and I pull you name, you can make him get on stage and take your abuse.
There will be an awesome prize, and by awesome, I mean cheap.
If you have any questions, post them here and I will do my best to answer them.
