Volunteer

helppoets.jpgWinnipeg Poetry Slam would not run without the support from community volunteers. We need a list of volunteers at each event to make slams happen:

  1. A sacrificial poet (someone who helps the audience judges establish scoring before the competition)
  2. A timekeeper (someone who makes sure each competitor stays under the time limit and announces deductions if they go over the time limit.)
  3. A scorekeeper (someone who records the scores judges give each poet at the slam)
  4. A door person (someone who takes admission and records how many attendees there are)
  5. A host (someone who opens and closes the evening, announces each competitor as they go up, and makes sure the night runs smoothly)
