Ottawa Poetry & Slam Poetry Resources

VERSeOttawa

VERSe Ottawa is a collective of Ottawa organizations who curate and produce reading and performance series. There is a high density of activity in poetry in Ottawa. More than 14 reading series hold regular events, which enjoy a cumulative attendance of between 600 and 1000 people per month. Poets featured and nurtured by these opportunities include the best of local talent, as well as some of Canadian Poetry’s brightest and best-respected poets. One of the principal strengths of VERSe is the inclusion of both traditional written- and spoken word poetry groups. In coming together, the members of VERSe Ottawa have created an organization that, we believe, is unique in Canada and, perhaps, North America. Every year we host a festival of spoken word and live lit poetry featuring both well-known and up-and-coming local, national, and international poets.
