So another Festival has come and gone but this one was a little different, seeing how it was right here in Ottawa.

Pulling back the curtain is pointless but just let me say that there was much hairpulling and teethgnashing on our way up to the festival, but once it was here – not so much. Sure there were a lot of things that didn’t go the way they should, but for the most part the only people who noticed were the organizers.

Then there was the huge fall-out of a disagreement between two poets. Even saying it that way doesn’t do it justice, and maybe I will talk about it at some point, but now I am still basking in the glow of the festival.

In the end, I got to stand on stage and announce that Capital Slam had won the National Slam Championships for the second year in a row.

I am proud of the team (Chris Tse, Open Secret, PrufRock, John AKpata, Brandon Wint) and I am VERY proud of the organizing committee who put the festival together. I especially want to point out Ruthanne Edward as the volunteer coordinator. She is the unsung hero of the festival. Big shout outs to Nathanael Larochette, Greg Frankson, Jessican Ruano, Danielle Gregoire, Brad Morden etc.

    As a (mostly) external observer, I thought the festival was outstanding. You all did an amazing job — thanks!
