We could not be more pleased to be kicking off this year's Canadian Festival of Spoken Word with a celebration of spoken word artists who have received this recognition - artists whose work exemplifies the diversity of styles and traditions within the spoken word community.
Featuring Victoria's Janet Rogers, Halifax's El Jones, Calgary's Kris Demeanor, and Edmonton's Mary Pinkoski.
