Stephen Brockwell reads at the In/Words + Capital Slam: A Summer Poetry Show

above/ground press author Stephen Brockwell (among others) reads on August 1, 2014 at Pressed Cafe on Gladstone Avenue, Ottawa, as the In/Words Reading Series and Capital Slam Collective join forces for A SUMMER POETRY SHOW. See the Facebook invitation here. Details below.
Sorry for yelling, but I want to make sure nobody misses this. We wish to invite everyone (that means you, yes you… or, wait… okay, yeah, you) to a very special event that will see In/Words Magazine & Press join forces with Ottawa’s Capital Poetry Slam for a special night of poetry. The idea for this show was birthed from the collective desire of CapSlam Coordinators and the In/Words editors to bring together local poets for a night of creativity and expression within the Ottawa poetry community. In coming together, the members of CapSlam and In/Words hope to put together a show that celebrates poetry’s many forms and communities. A good show is also a pretty easy way to get a bunch of cool people together in a room on a sticky summer night to have some fun. The evening’s lineup is as follows:

Dalton Derkson
Kevin Matthews
Stephen Brockwell

Brad Morden
JM Francheteau
Avonlea Fotheringham

The show will also open with the beautiful vocals of Julia Allen and her ukulele. Julia is an up-and-coming Ottawa based musician and both Julia and her music are contagious. There will also be a DJ spinning vinyl to facilitate intermission/post show mingling.

The show will kick off at 7 pm Friday, August 1st at Pressed Café on Gladstone. Tickets can be bought presale or at the door. All performers are loaning their time to help support these two poetry organizations, as all proceeds will directly contribute to In/Words and CapSlam operations.

Presale tickets:
$5 for students
$7 general
2 general tickets for $10 when purchased together
Presale tickets can be purchased at In/Words’ free monthly open mic event in the basement of The Clocktower Brew Pub (575 Bank St) on Wednesday, July 30th (9-11 pm). They can also be purchased at the In/Words Writers' Circle every Wednesday at 7 pm, held at Bridgehead, 750 Bank Street.
