The Summer slam season is here which means an altered format from the rest of the year. During the Summer season poets are asked to perform up to 2 minute, 1 minute and 4 minute long poems. 12 poets in the first round 6 in the second and the top 3 scoring poets in the third round…barring any ties.
Poets who make the third round earn points towards making the Vancouver Individual World Poetry Slam Playoffs and a chance to go to IWPS in the U.S. and represent Vancouver at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam in April 2018.
About Our Features:
Roya & Francis live in Vancouver and are from diverse backgrounds. They are community builders so their craft is inspired by the beauty in the people around them. Their sound crosses genres with roots in hip-hop, R&B and poetry. They met through many moments of serendipity from 2010 until the present. Through life circumstances, their connection, and their love for music, the universe kept bringing them back to each other, the serendipity like a command to make music and create together.
