We are so crazy excited to announce our LIVE AT THE ROYAL, TORONTO POETRY SLAM FINALS 2012 is now available for a purchase. A double-CD from our April 2012 show at the Royal on College, the CD features poetry from Spencer Butt, Britta B., Eytan Crouton, Lara Bozabalian, Kay'la Fraser, Cathy Petch and much more!
We are mad stoked to announce one of spoken word's legendary stars is coming to Toronto for one night only in early September.
Our founder and artistic director Dave Silverberg has just been published in a new textbook for high school teachers called Voices in the Hall, from McGraw-Hill Ryerson! His poem Make Em Laugh is featured in the Poetry section, and also includes lessons for teachers to pass along to students.
What's unique about this project is the online component: teachers can register with iLit.ca to get the poem and other material without buying the book.
