Vancouver Poetry Slam is Back!

Monday, September 27, 8pm PST
Featuring Charlie Petch
Come share your words & magic and as a bonus, compete for cash prizes. Also compete for a chance to battle a Slam legend head to head live (details on this coming soon) If you’re like me you’ve missed this gathering of community terribly, so let’s get together once again. Speaking of legends, our first feature for this fall series is the one & only Charlie Petch!! Bio linked below:
