what's next on your to do list?
The Vancouver Youth Poetry Slam presents FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT and the debut of the 2012 Vancouver Youth Poetry Slam Team. Three members of this year’s team, Jasmine Harvey, Floyd VB and our Grand Slam Champion, Scout will be performing as a team for the first time. This will also be our first ever FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT as we give away prizes to audience members as well as judges and poets. A night of saying thank you for all the support we’ve been getting. There will also be a poetry open mic and poetry slam competition. There are two rounds in the slam so bring at least two poems to compete with. Sign up begins at 7pm. Show starts at 8pm. It all takes place at Cafe Deux Soleils on Commercial Drive: 2096 Commercial Drive. A poetry slam is a performance poetry competition where all styles of poetic expression are welcome. There are a few rules though…no props, no costumes, and no musical instruments or pre recordings are allowed in the performance. There is also a 3 minte time limit.
