vic slam

please note- vic slam is taking a hiatus after the december 2019 slam.
there will be no canadian festival of spoken word in 2020.
all points earned in fall 2019 go towards invitations to cips qualifier on january 15 2020.
third Wednesdays will now be tongues of fire open mics with features.


vic slam is our once-monthly competitive poetry show, usually held on the third wednesday of every month at the caffe fantastico roastery in quadra village

poets competing at vic slam are doing so for the opportunity to be on the vic slam team, which represents our city’s poetry community at the canadian festival of spoken word every october.

because vic slam is a true competition, we do have rules and additional guidelines for how the show runs; please find them here and read them if you plan to compete.
