Okay, Cats and Kittens, this is a quick signal-boost for the third and final Qualifying Round for VERSeOttawa’s Women’s Slam is coming up this Saturday December 8th (just under two weeks from today).
If you are a lover of competitive spoken word, this is a show to come out for. This slam will determine the final four qualifiers for the Women’s Slam Championship happening in January 2013, and the bar has already been set high since the likes of Dimorphic, Elle P, Jenna Tenn-Yuk, Hannah Christie, Kayla Fraser, Freedom Writer, CauseMo, and Missaralee are already lined up to compete on stage in January.
For those who identify as both women and slam poets: If you are hoping to qualify for the Championship Round (happening in January 2013), this is your LAST CHANCE to do it. Bring your best work – two pieces, no more than three minutes long – to the Mercury Lounge on Saturday, December 8th and sign up to compete. Everybody slams twice, so if you’re competing, come prepared with two pieces to perform.
Date – Saturday, December 8th, 2012
Doors & Sign-Up – 6:30pm
Slam – 7:00pm
Cover: $8 (competitors get in free)
The Fine Print:
Women who have already earned a spot in the championship round are welcome to sign up BUT slammers who have yet to place get priority on the stage.
If you place twice, you still only get one competition slot at the finals.
