The Canadian Festival of Spoken Word is an annual singularity of words.
Teams from all across Canada will converge to compete in an epic poetry slam battle royale.  This year's the theme is "Home Word Sound".


This year the Festival will be hosted in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
Also referred to as the City of Bridges and of course Toon Town to the weird people of Moose Jaw and probably Swift Current.


The 2015 Festival will run from October the 18th until the 24th.
This will conflict with the national election for participating teams.  We suggest you check out Elections Canada advance polling options.
