Metaphors Be With You

Picked up the Hullabaloo t-shirts yesterday and we’re already receiving facebook messages from people asking me how they can buy them. We might have to do a second printing. Big ups to Dave at The Goods on Broadway for doing such a great job. If you need a quality silk-screening job done at super-reasonable rates, he’s your man.

For now, the only way to get one of these sweet t-shirts is to participate in Hullabaloo as a student poet or to volunteer at the festival.

To participate (if you’re 14–18 years old and not already on a registered team), you could come to the Last Chance Slam this Monday at Café Deux Soleils and sign-up to perform. Bring two 3-minute poems. If you finish in the top four, you become part of the Wild Card Team that is automatically entered into the Hullabaloo BC Youth Slam Championships. And you receive one of these wicked t-shirts.

To volunteer, send an email to wordplaypoets@gmail.com and I’ll put you in touch with our fabulous Volunteer Coordinator, Jillian.
