Get ready to cheer for the poets, laugh, snap fingers, stomp feet, and have your heart opened and your mind blown!
With exciting back to back nights at ROXY Theatre, we kick off Night 1 SEMI-FINALS on Tuesday April 11th @ 7PM. On Night 2, we go straight into our evening of FINALS + Special Feature Performance on Wednesday April 12th @ 7PM. Rounding out our festival this year will be Victoria Poetry Project’s long-standing Tongues of Fire (ToF) Open Mic Night 3 Featuring #VICVOICES Alumni at Caffe Fantastico on Thursday April 13th @ 7PM. We hope to wind down from the high slam energy of Night 1 & 2 by gathering in a cozy setting to share work!
You will not want to miss out on these events!
We recognize that our work occurs primarily lands of the Lekwungen peoples, today known as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations, as well as on other traditional, ancestral and unceded territories on southern Vancouver Island.
