2013 Canadian Indies Registration

Hello poets, if you are interested in participating in the 2013 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championships, please read the Indies FAQ. If there are any further questions, feel free to contact Chris Gilpin at hello@vancouverpoetryhouse.com.

Venue registration will open on February 1, 2013. It will be $25, payable online through this website via PayPal or credit card (if you need to pay by cheque, contact Chris). All participating venues must be registered by February 28th, 2013 for their representative to receive our totally sweet subsidy. On top of that, if our aeroplan campaign reaches a certain level, then all registered SpoCan venues will be entered in a contest for a free return airfare to Vancouver on Air Canada (there could be multiple free fares available depending on how many miles we raise, spread the word about the campaign!).

Storm poet registration opens on March 1st, 2013. The storm poet registration fee will be $75, payable online via PayPal or credit card. Unlike prior years, you must pay online immediately to reserve your spot. There will be 40 poets in the competitions. The number of storm poets will be 40 minus the number of venues that register. A significant percentage of the storm poet slots will be reserved for poets outside of BC for the first week (until March 8th) to encourage the greatest possible geographic diversity.
