The Calgary Spoken Word Society was created in November 2003 by poet Sheri-D Wilson, and received its charitable tax status in 2006. Influenced by its founder’s passion, the Society’s vision is to develop a forum for the dissemination and promotion of Spoken Word Poetry locally, provincially, nationally and internationally, through performance and education. During April, we also present Spoken Word Program @ The Banff Centre, which offers a unique milieu for the spoken word artist to explore and develop both their voice and their career path. Throughout the year, we host bi-monthly Poetry SLAM! & Open Mics, which has grabbed hold in Calgary as the audiences continue to grow exponentially. Hundreds of emerging poets have taken an interest in this fabulous new form.
