The Canadian Festival of Spoken Word is an annual festival produced by Spoken Word Canada and planned by a local Festival Organizing Committee in each host city. The inaugural festival took place in Ottawa, Ontario in 2004 and was then known as the Canadian Spoken Wordlympics. CFSW has since become the flagship event for poetry slam in Canada, and is evolving to better represent the full spectrum of spoken word nationally. Poetry teams representing different cities compete against each other through judged competitions.
Up From the Roots has participated as one of the teams representing Toronto in the CFSW since 2006. The team is made up of poets who competed throughout the year at Dwayne Morgan’s monthly poetry Slam and Open Mic, The Roots Lounge which started in January of 2000. This year’s team includes Dwayne Morgan, Paulina O’Kieffe, Joshua ‘Scribe” Watkis and Gavin Russell.
Spoken Word is free to come and free for anyone to perform, regardless of style, experience or identity.
