We acknowledge this event is taking place on the unceded, occupied territories of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.

The Summer Slam continues to roll along as poets attempt to gain points to make it into the Vancouver IWPS playoff in September.

There are 3 rounds of poetry. A 2 minute round, a 1 minute round and a 4 minute round. Be prepared to flex and stretch your poetry muscles.
