Poetry Night in Ottawa

(UPDATE:) This page was for the 2006 event.
Click here for the 2007 event at the 4th Stage in Ottawa.

CBC Poetry Face-Off: Ottawa, 7:00 pm. National Arts Centre, 4th Stage

Ottawa's CBC Poetry Face-Off Winner, D'Janau (DJ) Morales!

That is some product placement on the back of her left hand for the Ottawa Poetry Podcast. ( The writing reminds me of the kind of advertising seen in prime-time boxing where a boxer may have ' online casino' written on their bodies for advertisement. Golden Palace is infamously known for buying this kind of schlocky yet high-visibility advertising whether it be from a renegade 'fan' leaping into an olympic diving pool or buying a piece of burnt toast with a religious image emblazoned on it on eBay.

In any case, more photos of the evening's poetry event can be viewed here:

All proceeds from the entry fee went to the English Language Tutoring for the Ottawa Community. ELTOC provides free home tutoring for adult immigrants who cannot attend regular English programs.
