I’ve been more involved in previous years, and it’s kinda nice to sit back and just let someone else deal with the Organizing aspect while I turn up, pay my eight bucks, and enjoy the show. This show’s on Wednesday (THIS Wednesday), January 29th at a cafe that is VERY convenient to me, and I’m looking forward to drinking a peary cider, eating a really excellent sandwich, and enjoying some of Ottawa’s best slam poets strutting their stuff on stage. If you’re a fan of slam and/or a fan of women poets – or, hey, if you’re a woman-ientified poet who slams – I do hope you’ll come out on Wedensday and maybe even get up on stage. :-D
