Monthly Archives: November 2010
We have lots of great thing brewing for fans of performance poetry in the Burlington area. So let’s get down to it:
1. Straight To The Streets 2010 – It was the 5 year anniversary of this event this past weekend and it keeps getting bigger & better each year. The goal is give warmth to anyone willing to accept it. You can read an article about it by KJ Mullins on Newz4U.net and catch the man-on-the-street video of George Stroumbooulopoulos (CBC’s The Hour) encourgaing us or find the Open Minds Respect Events group on Facebook.
2. Blog Layout – In case you haven’t noticed, there have been some changes to the layout of the blog lately. I’ve updated the Upcoming Slams page for the next 3 months, the WTF is a Poetry Slam page now explains a slam as well as the rules. I’ve created a new page called Making The Team that leads to a page of this years team or a listing of the cumulative monthly standings for the current season. I’ve also expanded the About Us page with a link to Tomy’s Bio. very soon I’ll be adding my own bio.
3. Scores & Standings – In an effort to meet new SpoCan regulations and to be as transparent as possible with our scoring we have posted the scores from November and each month moving forward. It will be on the facebook group page, part of my Monthly Wrap-up, and from the Making The Team page.
