Spoken Word: Spit It Out Sundays


This Sunday January 14th, you can check out the start of a brand new Youth Poetry Series at the Van East Cultural Centre. It's free and starts at 6:30pm. If you have kids and they love words you should definitely have them at this event.

Organized by the Vancouver East Cultural Centre Youth Program in collaboration with the Vancouver Poetry House, Spit It Out Sundays will kick off with two dynamic slam poet facilitators, Barbara Adler (shown in photo with fellow poet Brendan McLeod) and Magpie Ulysses, at the helm. Adler and Ulysses are bold, sharp-tongued twentysomethings who boast multiple time membership on the Vancouver Poetry Slam team. Both have toured and performed extensively throughout North America and published collections of their works. Adler even boasts a CD, Flusterbush. Come Sunday, this talented duo will be guiding youth on how to create performative poetry, encouraging young minds to vocalize their thoughts aesthetically and share their opinions with the world. The night will also feature a performance by youth slam poet Superboy.
