The first CYHMN? solo slam is finished, and what an amazing night of poetry!
More than 50 people spectated at the spectacle of spectacular performances performed by 9 open mic poets and 10 slammers!
Poems were shared during the open mic segment of the evening by Levi, Kiara Flotten, Tataina Auramenko, Emily Firmston, Maziar Matin Panech,Timothy Curtis, Sydney Low, Precious Joy Tugade, and Rachel Massey.
After Britta generously played the role of sacrificial poet, slammers included Jarod Sexfang, Bri Lynn, Keeley, Robin Bowering, Alexis Kelly, Kim Firmston, Daryll Sazon, Paul Finkleman, Em Dubs, and John Williamson. Congratulations to Paul Finkleman for winning the slam, narrowly beating out Jarod and Bri, who earned second and third places, respectively.
Thanks to the poets for their performances, everyone who attended for their encouragement, to ATB Financial for their generous support, and Loft 112 for the space!
