The Vancouver poetry house presents feature poets Kelsey Warren and Bryan Roessel.
Kelsey Warren stumbled across the world of poetry in late 2014, when a series of tragedies led her to this psuedo-therapy. This year she competed at the Women of the World Poetry Slam in Albequerque, NM, and was part of the Visalia team competing at the National Poetry Slam in Oakland, CA. One of her poems has been featured on Button Poetry.
Bryan Roessel is a poet/science teacher in New York’s Lower Hudson Valley. He is the founder and slammaster of Rock Slam (formerly Suffern Slam Society). He has competed at the National Poetry Slam 4 times. His poetry is chiefly about science, sadness, and relationships. He has also been featured on Button Poetry.
As always, there will be an open mic and two-round poetry slam, (3 min)where poets accumulate points to qualify for the Van Slam team.
Cafe Deux Soleils and the Van Slam strive to be a trans friendly place and a hate speech free zone. Help us with that. We also acknowledge that this event takes place on unceded First Nations Territory.
Also, be kind to our VOLUNTEER door staff. They have to follow BC Liquor Board Rules and once we are sold out we can’t let anyone in unless someone leaves. You cannot save seats for people in line. Let them know if you are leaving. Also no ATM at the door, it’s cash ONLY.
Get there early if you want a seat or want to slam. Before 7pm
