And what a night it was! With Slam-master Kristy Westendorp in her fuzzy green hat of impartiality and tweleve bright-eyed poets eager to Slam glory.
We heard poems without similes from Matthew Christopher Davidson, a message from the future from Skawt Chonz and a diatribe to shitty love songs from Dave Morris. It was a night of laughter, tears and cheers.
And who ended up on top at the end of the night? Here's your top eight:
Matthew Christopher Davidson
Come on May 21 armed with fan signs and lungs ready to cheer, because only five of these poets will make it onto the Victoria Slam Team!
See you at the Finals.
