Well, we knew that Victoria was sending Jeremy Loveday as our Indie Champ to the Vancouver International Poetry Festival (VIP) in April. But we've just found out he's not the only one going from the island...
Both Matthew Christopher Davidson and Megan Ann Ward have been accepted as storm poets in the competition. For the full list of storm poets: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150411123660051&id=747354602
Matthew Christopher Davidson is a member of the 2010 and 2011 Slam Teams and the future artistic director of Tongues of Fire.
Megan Ann Ward is a member of the 2011 Slam Team and the Volunteer Coordinator for Tongues of Fire.
We wish them both, and the Loveday the best of luck!
