Capital Slam Finalist Spotlight: Gavin Russell


Gavin exploded onto the scene a couple of years back, immediately making his presence felt at all the slams in the city. In 2012 he was named co-champion of the Ottawa Youth Poetry Slam and represented them at a Youth slam at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. In 2013 he made the Capital Slam team and at CFSW a poem that he wrote (with another finalist on this year’s list), which he performed with the entire team, was chosen as a special feature on finals stage.

The 10th Capital Slam Finals take place on May 24th at the Alumni Auditorium at the University of Ottawa. Doors at 6:30. $10 at the door.
