AMY EVERHART WINS iWPS 2009!
« on: October 11, 2009, 07:58:47 AM »
Amy Everhart wins the 2009 Individual World Poetry Slam championship!

She hails from Denver and is also the first woman to win this competition.  
PSi congratulates our 2009 iWPS champion, and our fine host city committee for a job well done!

Didn't get enough?  Apparently you can catch her doing a feature this coming Tuesday in NYC at the Bowery Poetry Club.

Congrats Amy & Denver fam!

I loved each round & the room for scores to move, too.

Is the entire list up somewhere? Did anyone take a picture of the whole list Friday night?
The website only has Thursday, not Friday.
