The next Capital Slam semi-finalist spotlight shines on ArRay-of-WoRds!
The poet also known as Ray first showed up in 2009… and won the first slam he ever entered! He quickly became a regular on the scene before the call of the world swept him away, off to the Philippines and Nicaragua. When he returned he brought with him both a newly acquired walking stick and an increased attachment to the words of our art.
While Ray has been around the scene for a few years, he made his mark nationally as part of the Kingston Slam team that made the CFSW Finals stage in 2011. Ray is also now the primary organizer of the Ottawa Youth Poetry Slam.
Here is Ray when he was on the Kingston Slam team.
