Hey Friends and Followers, it’s Ben here. This past Friday, September 20th, YSP went out to support local art at the London Poetry Slam. This was Mike’s first time out and it was a great slam to get him into the scene. The competition was fantastic and the Feature Performer, The P.O.E., gave a great show. Between rounds, I sat down to talk with my friend and LPS regular, TedO.
Ted will be competing at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word for his second year in a row this coming October. CFSW is a national slam where teams of poets from across Canada represent their cities in artistic competition.
Enjoy our interview with spoken word artist, wordsmith, and storyteller, TedO
The London Poetry Slam takes place on the third Friday of every month at the London Music Club. Admission is five dollars and the show starts at eight. For more info, check out their website or their group on Facebook.
