$10,000 poetry slam coming to Guelph, Ontario
« on: February 06, 2012, 11:03:58 PM »
So Guelph is not too far from Toronto, an hour and a bit bus ride, in case you guys want to hit up a poetry slam where you can win thousands of dollars in prize money. Canada is rich, I tell you, rich!

It's run by the Guelph Spoken Word folks and some arts promoters, and it's called the Ontario International Poetry Slam (OIPS), a single-day competition, which expects to have a total of 72 poets going head-to-head in six preliminary bouts.

It's on Nov. 10.
