Event Description:
Each year, Encinitas-based Full Moon Poets presents two major Poetry Slams at La Paloma, one in the Summer and one in the Winter.  The Slams are free and open to the public.  These are one of the largest poetry slams in San Diego County packing the theater with several hundred people.  The competition is now in its 18th year and draws poets from throughout the County and beyond.
For interested poets, all names will be placed in the famous popcorn bucket and the first 12 names pulled will be the line-up for the night. There are 3 elimination rounds going from 12 poets to 8 and the final 3 for the last round. Prize money collected from the audience will go to the winners. No props, musical instruments, costumes or recorded music allowed. Poets need 3 original poems that do not exceed 3 minutes each. All ages may compete.  Poets under the age of 18 must have an adult to sign a release.
