Do you hear those sleigh bells jingle? No! That’s your alarm to tell you the LPMMPUWCGPT Invitational HAS RETURNED!

We’ve had some good times: we’ve laughed together, cried from laughing together
and we have seen two poets ascend to the title of Giggling Gladiator!!!

Now its time to tackle the tough stuff...POLITICS!

3 rounds of intensive political poetry debate to decide which poet takes
home the title of Political Pugilist and moves on to our GRAND SLAM in February.

The rules are simple: 3 poems, all in the designated theme of your chosen slam. The winner of each heat doesn’t just get to take home a scintillating cash prize, but also a bulging box of beer from our generous sponsors over at The winner of the grand slam will claim the prestigious title of LPMMPUWCGPT Champion, collect an even BIGGER cash prize, MORE BEER, and to top it all off a polished poetry video shot and edited by our excellent master of visuals, Perry Jonsson.

We won’t just be bringing you contenders, we will also be featuring some of the most talented performers within each genre to show you HOW IT’S DONE!!! This month we will also be bringing you a truly amazing and inspiring feature in Victoria McNulty!

Now that the arguments have all been put forward theres only one thing left to do...
