Winnipeg Poetry Slam would not run without the support from community volunteers. We need a list of volunteers at each event to make slams happen:
- A sacrificial poet (someone who helps the audience judges establish scoring before the competition)
- A timekeeper (someone who makes sure each competitor stays under the time limit and announces deductions if they go over the time limit.)
- A scorekeeper (someone who records the scores judges give each poet at the slam)
- A door person (someone who takes admission and records how many attendees there are)
- A host (someone who opens and closes the evening, announces each competitor as they go up, and makes sure the night runs smoothly)
