THIS Tuesday night the Rouge Poetry SLAM series will come to a close at the SLAM FINALS!
In collaboration with the Edmonton Poetry Festival, we bring you an intense night of spoken word poetry as 9 poets battle it out for 4 spots (+1 alternate) on the 2012 Edmonton Poetry Slam Team that will defend our championship at the 2012 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Saskatoon.
Along with making the team, the winning poets will also get a chance at some sweet cash prizes!
1st Place – $200
2nd Place – $150
3rd Place – $100
4th Place – $50
Slam Finals will also feature the incredible Brendan Mcleod all the way from Vancouver and will kick off with a Youth Feature from some of Edmonton rising poets!
We hope to see you all there to cheer on your favorite poets and to determine which team will represent the city of champions at nationals this year!
