VoV Showcase at VERSeFest – Lineup Announcement (Winners of the first ever Ottawa Women’s Slam Championship)

So. Perhaps you joined us for the sold-out, people-sitting-in-the-spare-room-listening-in, women’s slam championship at Arts Court last night.

If you did, you know it was glorious: The show included a slew of women from Ottawa’s slam scene – everyone from fourteen-year-old new-comer, Scotch; to slam scene godmother Stargazer – and you know the scores were very close all night long. As Kathryn Hunt put it, it could have been “anyone’s game”. My favourites of the evening included Stargazer’s “Three Steps for My Children” and Sepideh’s piece about bearing the weight of her poet-grandfather’s name.

However, at the end of the night the scores were totalled and the results were announced.

There were not one, but TWO ties for the evening. O.O

So. The four people who will be featuring in the Voices of Venus showcase at VERSeFest are:

Tied with the second highest score of the night:
Festrel (our usual Fabulous VoV host, which means you’re getting me as your host for the evening on February 29th)
and
Elle P.

AND

Tied for the highest score of the night:
D-Lightfull (VoV feature alumna – Thanks to Rusty for sending in the link)
and
Sepideh

So no w you know. And you know you don’t want to miss this.😀

TTFN,
A.
