Calgary Poetry Slam!

The Calgary International Spoken Word Festival presents:

The Calgary Poetry Slam!

Beat Niq Jazz & Social Club – 811 1st St SW
Opening Performer: Wakefield Brewster
Hosts: Sheri-D Wilson & Mark Hopkins

In October, the Calgary Poetry Slam kicked off its second year! Riding the momentum of the recently-returned Calgary Slam Team, who competed in Toronto’s Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, the season’s first Slam was an intense and energetic poetry experience! Wakefield Brewster – a.k.a. ‘da lyrical pitbull’ – took home the prize: cash, a shot at the 2007 CBC Poetry Face-Off and the 2007/08 Calgary Slam Team, and the chance to perform at this month’s Slam!

Next Slam: November 29! 10 Competitors Only!

If YOU want to Slam, bring a $5 registration fee and 3 poems (three-minute MAX, each), and sign up with Mark Hopkins. Sign-up begins at 7:00 pm SHARP, first come, first served, so be sure to arrive early! For Slam procedures and rules, please visit

Upcoming Slams: December 28, 2006
