It’s the annual Freshers’ Poetry Slam, this year in collaboration with the lovely DramSoc! All are welcome to sign up and share their work. We welcome all ranges of experience and are eager to hear your words. We’ll be providing food and drink to make it that much more appetizing. Check out the official slam rules below, and sign up at the LitSoc Freshers' Stand to make your voice heard! (Alternatively, you can contact us through facebook!) Rules: Freshers can sign up at the Litsoc stand in the Freshers' tent throughout Freshers' Week to take part. 12 participants will be selectedly randomly from the list on Thursday, so be sure to turn up early! No props are allowed, just your own voices! Each poet must have 2 original poems learned off by heart to perform in under 3 minutes; there is a 10 second grace period after that: for every 5 seconds 0.5 points from your overall score would be deducted. Poems are scored 5 for content and 5 for delivery so out of 10 overall. We will have two rounds of 6 poets, and from each round, 2 poets will be selected to compete in the final. The four finalists will win prizes, and the adoration of the entire UCD campus - but only one will be crowned the reigning Fresher's Slam Poet of 2017!
