November 20th vic slam ft. Catherine Garrett
doors at 8pm, show at 8:30pm | 19+ | door admission is $10, cash only – bigger donations happily accepted! 

vic slam is our once/month competition, where poets are ultimately competing for a spot on our vic slam team, which represents our community at the canadian festival of spoken word every october. it’s like an open mic, but poets only get 3 minutes to perform one piece, and have some rules to follow to keep it fair (check them out below). it sounds weird, but we promise it’s lots of fun, and one of our most popular events!
