Catherine Garrett (they/she) is a bisexual powerhouse who puts their considerable passion to poetry and reporting, and getting other people to write their bios for her. She recently placed second at the 2021 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam (CIPS). They’ve competed on three Victoria slam teams and one Vancouver slam team, and was also a CIPS finalist of 2020. They can be found drinking beer, and yelling about hockey on twitter. Her numerous publications include Moria, Room, Sky Island Journal, Iced Lolly Review, Inertia Teens, Oraotrealis, Turnpike, and Cotyledon. They will bring a lot of complicated enthusiasm on such topics as family, death, and doing what you love.
Poets in our slam can win cash & collect points toward the playoffs later in the year!
There will also be free pinball until 7:45 pm at Van Slam events!!
Sign up to slam will start at 7:15 both in person and online.

– You tip the bar staff as per usual.
– You can bring whatever food you want as well, but are responsible for the garbage.
