WestFest

Posted: June 14, 2010 in Poetry

The latest is spoken word fun in the nation’s capital (while one of our own was half a world away showing where the best poets in the world reside), was WestFest.

Saturday had a great showcase curated by Luna Allison. It featured CapSlamChamp Chris Tse, UL Finalist D-Lightfull, UL Finalist Hyfidelik, and Lanark County Finalist Emily Kwissa.

It was a really good show. Chris and D did a team piece and all of them did some good stuff.

I am really pulling for D-Lightfull to make the Urban Legends team. As great as the CapSlam team is, there hasn’t been a female poet repping Ottawa since Danielle was the alternate in ’07.
