What this means:

If you see "confirmed" next to your name, that means you have contacted AKeem and confirmed you will be competing at April 27th's Grand Slam Finals to create the team that will compete in Denver, CO. at National Poetry Slam.


Waitlisters:

If a person in the Top 13 (tie for 12) contacts me and says they are not going to compete, then that is your chance to move up in the rank, but in order to move up, you must contact me (either by message, email @ [email protected], phone if you have my number). I will otherwise take your silence as not being interested in competing.
