After the preliminary bouts are completed, the poets with the twelve best scores and ranks advance to the finals. The thirteenth poet is designated the calibration poet. All poems in the finals are three-minute (or less) poems. No poems may be repeated during the tournament.

All twelve finalists will read in the first round; the seven poets with the highest scores move on to the second round. These seven poets read another poem and the top four go to the final round. These four poets will each read one more poem, and the high score of that round is the Women of the World Poetry Slam Champion. If there is a tie between the top two poets, they read one more poem in a sudden death match, or they agree to share the title.  In a sudden death match, judges indicate which poet they prefer by choosing one poet or the other (no scores) and the champion is crowned.
