Hey all! The season is well underway at the Burlington Slam Project! We’ve only got two slams remaining before our finals in March, so if you want a spot on the team, make sure you’ve slammed AT LEAST twice during our competitive season!
I’d like to take this moment to offer a HUGE congratulations! Our 2017 Women of the World Poetry Slam (WoWPS) Representative will be:
The indomitable presence that is Cassandra Myers won our qualifier slam for this opportunity back in November against some seriously tough competition, including Toronto dynamo Reema, GPS team member and CFSW champ Elise, and her two fellow Ragdolls, Londzo and Twoey Gray. We at the Burlington Slam could not be more proud to have her represent our scene at this magnificent and important event! Best of luck Cassandra! We can’t wait to hear the stories you come back with!
I’d also like to take this moment to congratulate two of our slammers – Korey with a K and Sebastian Chong for being the first poets to pre-qualify for our Individual World Poetry Slam qualifier! Both of these dashing lads have slammed thrice this season and earned the chance to compete to see who will get to represent Burlington at IWPS this year. Over the next few months, a number of big competitors will be joining them though, so it’s not going to be easy!
Third Thursday! See y’all then!
