*Featuring C.R. Avery*
Why: Aside from winning a cash prize, February through May are the months to qualify for the team we will be sending to the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word (CFSW) in Ottawa this October.
Cost: We ask for a $5 donation to cover the cost of our feature performer and the prize money.
