Call for Submissions

This is Guelph Spoken Word’s official call for submissions to artist / facilitators for programming inclusion at the 2018 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word (CFSW) - A national week long spoken word festival and slam tournament. We are looking for a wide range of proposals including events, workshops and feature performances.

Apply By June 4th


This year’s CFSW theme is Community and while we intend to focus on the many forms that relationships can take within the spoken word community, we're also looking to explore a diversity of submissions that explore the theme of community from outside our immediate group.
