It's a new year so it's time for some new poetry! Get your 2016 on at the Windsor Poetry Slam because, yes, it's going to be amazing. Taking place at Phog Lounge on Thursday Jan 21st. Doors will be 7pm, show start at 8pm. If you want to slam please be there by 7:45 at the latest to sign up. This will be a brand new season and poets can start to accumulate points towards being Windsor’s rep for the 2016 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam as well as the 2016 Windsor Poetry Slam Team.
I'm also super happy to announce our feature poet will Rafay Ansari aka “Oracle whyZ”
He is a 25 year old Hip-Hop poet, hailing from Windsor, Ontario and currently residing in Cambridge. In his writings, he touches upon his personal views of reality, world issues, spirituality and social "norms". His adoration of life and love of learning is uniquely resonant in all of his work.
He aims to inspire the youth to utilize their creative potential, and find new outlets and perspectives through Hip-Hop and Spoken Word. Rafay plans to continue his works through rhyme & rhythm, as well as continue to grow with the artists around him.
Can't wait till the slam? Check out some of Rafay's poetry or follow him on all the social media!
