CFSW 2012

CFSW 2012

Up From the Roots took the gold this year at The Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Saskatoon. It was a proud moment for the crew, followed by joy and tears and then dancing and then a flight home in a state of dazed amazement.

The whole week reaffirmed to me my commitment not just to poetry but to community. From facilitating a discussion on slam and safe space to organizing the second annual underground individual slam championships to spending time with some of the most inspiring, interesting and talented people I know, I feel that the week was one of the best lived weeks of my life.
