So I mentioned that there was a Big Even coming up this month. Specifically, you can catch a slew of awe-inspiring poets competing for glory, imfamy, and a shot at a feature spot during VoV’s VERSeFest 2012 presentation at Ottawa’s first-ever Women’s Slam Championship.
This slam in by-invitation only and the competitors include VoV alumnae D’Lightfull, Jenna Tenn-Yuk, Sara Musa, Danielle K. L. Gregoire, and everyone’s favourite rogue host Festrell, plus a carefully sellected collective of women slammers drawn from all of Ottawa’s slam history (click the above link to find out who).
The slam will be hosted by Once Upon a Slam founder Ruthanne Edward and Mia Morgan has stepped up to be the sacraficial poet.
Open File Ottawa has an article about women and slam that you can check out here.
