A: Thank you for your inquiry.
Every year at the Southern Fried Poetry Slam competition, the slammasters meet twice to make decisions about the future of the tournament.
Last year, the Slammasters voted to institute a membership fee of $20 per person. You can read more about this decision and others like it in our End of Year 2017 report here: https://www.southernfriedpoetryslam.com/end-year-letter-2017/
Please let us know how we can further assist you.
See you soon!

A: Thank you for reaching out regarding your registration concerns. We have received your initial registration information; however, the 32 team slots have been filled.
We are currently accepting teams for the wait list. If a team drops out, the first team on the list will take their spot. If another team drops, the next team on the list will take that spot. Your registration fee wouldn’t be paid until that time, which is why it won’t allow you to add anything to your cart.
