Vic Slam Team Gig the First

You thought we were taking the summer off?!

Ha! We're here with a vengeance and we're sharing the stage with some illustrious fellows with AWESOME FACEs: RC Weslowski and Chris Gilpin. Also featuring is Victoria's own Joe McDougall.

This is part of Festival of the Folk- a weekend long celebration of local folk! So, come on down and see your slam team in action for the first time when they're not being judged!

Reflection on Slam Season

So the slam season is over now. Speaking as a fully-fledged member of the Victoria Slam Team, it was sure an exciting one. Thanks for judging me ;-)

We went from one slam a month last year to two a month this year! And the calibre of poets that graced our stage- wow. I'm pleased in the growth of our scene for sure. I really can't wait to see everybody back in September with a fistful of new poems.

Thanks so much to Kristy for being our slam master with the green hat, and everyone who worked the door/set-up/sound. It's really a community effort eh?

Considering how much fun these last few months were I can't wait to have the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word (CFSW) here in November.

Thanks for listening.
