The 2018 Vic Slam Team needs your help to get to the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in Guelph, ON!
Your donation will go to transportation, food, and lodging. Extra funds raised will go to honorariums for those who have hugely helped us & future teams!


Meet the 2018 Vic Slam Team: Olivia Kompier, Marie Metaphor, Dana Neily, and Hilary Somerville. We're four women who competed throughout the Victoria Poetry Project's 2018-18 slam season, baring our souls on the stage and at the mercy of numerical scores from people we didn't know. At the Vic Slam Finals in May 2018, we were the competitors who scored the highest and formed this year's team!

Essentially, we'll be travelling to Guelph, Ontario from Victoria, BC for the 15th Annual Canadian Festival of Spoken Word from October 26th - November 3rd to compete (and make friends) with teams from scenes across the country and represent Victoria on the national stage!

It's a big job! That's why we're asking for your help.

We've covered almost all of our expenses, but need a little bit more to cover the last bits of transportation, food, and lodging costs (why is travelling within Canada more expensive than going to Europe?). We'd also like to provide honoraria to a few folks who have volunteered countless hours and energy into helping our team be successful this year - and perhaps leave a little extra to help invest in future Vic Slam Teams.

Please, if you can, consider donating to us. It's cheesy, but every dollar really does help.
