On December 5, Victoria Poetry Project held the Vic Slam Indies. The night was hosted by 2 Dope Boys in a Cadillac, and saw eight of Victoria's best spoken word poets compete for the chance to represent Victoria at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam which takes place April 5-12 in Vancouver. The poets, who competed by invitation only, were Scott Thompson, Audrey Cockett, Pam Stewart, Morgan Purvis-Bellamano, Matthew Christopher Davidson, Justin McGrail, Keenan Proud, and Jeremy Loveday.
After four rounds of poetry, the incredible wordsmith Audrey Lane Cockett walked away the champion!
Audrey will be representing our fine city this Spring. Truly, we could not have asked for a better poet to rep our talents. Audrey has already made us so proud that she is a member of our incredible community. Congratulations, Audrey, and congratulations Victoria!
