Vancouver Poetry Slam
The Vancouver Poetry Slam is a weekly two-round slam that takes place on Mondays in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at Cafe Deux Soleils located at 2096 Commercial Drive. Points are accrued according to a system whereby 1st place gets 16 points, 2nd place gets 9 points, 3rd place gets 4 points, and 4th place gets 1 point. Our regular slam season takes place between September and April. We use our three-round (1 min, 2 min and 4 min) 'summer' season (May-August) to select our IWPS rep finalists for our playoff in September. Our venue is an all-ages, licensed vegetarian restaurant with a medium-sized stage, two lights, and a microphone with two large, ceiling-mounted speakers. Cover is $6-$10 sliding scale, doors are at 7 and the show starts at 8.
