The Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championships were just held at the Vancouver International Poetry Festival. This event was first held in 2011 and was won by our very own OpenSecret! So, did an Ottawa poet take the title this year?
No, but there was some great showings by our poets!
The new champ is none other than Vancouver legend, RC Weslowski! (For all our CapSlam fans, RC is the guy with the crossed eyes on the slam legend painting up at the Merc)
Runner up was none other than CapSlam founder, Ritallin!
That’s not all! 2011 CapSlam team member Loh El finished 7th overall!
We are also proud of great showings by ArRay-of-WoRds, Brad Morden, PrufRock and Sense-Say!
