fw: 2014 Women's Slam

It’s back!
This year, VERSeOttawa is teaming up with the Capital Poetry Collective to bring you Women’s Slam 2014.
No qualifying rounds, all women-identified poets welcome, just step up to the mic and slam.
Where: Pressed Cafe
Date: Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 (that’s this week!)
Doors & Sign-Up: 6:45
Show: 7:15
Cover: $8 at the door (free for competing poets)
Twelve spots available. Everybody slams twice, with a three-minute time limit on poems.
We’re doing things a little differently this year:
In the past, the Women’s Slam Showcase features were determined via a series of qualifying slams and a finals. The top 4 poets from the finals then went onto feature at the showcase as part of the VerseFest programming- each receiving a 20-25 minute solo set.
THIS YEAR, instead of having a series of qualifying rounds and a final, we’ve pre-determined 3 of the 4 features through recommendations from the wider Ottawa slam community. The slam on January 29th will determine this year’s champion, who will be the fourth and final feature in the Sister in Slam showcase at VERSeFest on March 26th.
Bring your best. We’ll see you at Pressed.
