Every audience member, including contestants, will vote for their Top 5 favourite poems/poets who will move on to the final round.
During the final round the contestants can choose either to re-read their poems from round one, or read one or two new poems.
Again, judging in the final round will come from the audience who will vote for their Top 3.
The Top 3 contestants will win prizes
