CFSW 2010 Ottawa – LAST CHANCE SLAM

Hey poetry afficionados,

As part of the 2010 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word (CFSW 2010 Ottawa), we will be holding a Last Chance Slam (LCS) on Tuesday, October 12 at 1 p.m. Please disseminate this information in your local networks to any poet who is potentially interested in travelling to Ottawa to compete in the LCS.

We are going to have an advanced registration process for the LCS that looks like this:

On Tuesday, August 31 we will accept submissions for entrance in the LCS. To register, send an email to info@cfsw.ca with the subject line “Last Chance Slam Registrant” between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. EDT on August 31. Entries improperly submitted will not be accepted. A draw will then be held on September 1 for the 12 slots in the LCS, with a public announcement of the results to follow.

If you have any questions about the LCS or about the slam tournament in general, please contact CFSW 2010 Ottawa National Slammaster Rusty Priske (rustypriske at rogers dot com). 

The festival begins seven weeks from today – check out http://www.cfsw.ca/ for updates, information and more!
