Save $15 (before April 10) on an Early Bird festival pass that gives you full access to all Verses Festival of Words events:
Hullabaloo Youth Poetry Slam Competition
Three Showcases (see below for details)
5 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championships bouts
Two late night cabaret shows
Five afternoon group shows
Five community stages
Two Talk the Talk community discussions
and much more!
Buy your pass here before April 10th and it’s only $60.
After April 10th, a Verses Festival of Word Pass is $75.
Show up to festival events early to claim your seats. If you arrive later than 15 minutes before the event, and the event has already reached capacity, you are not guaranteed entrance. Festival passes do not apply to Masterclasses; those require separate registration.
Buying a festival pass is a great way to save money if you’re seeing 3 or more shows.
For instance if you bought advance tickets to the three evening showcases:
April 23: Oceans to Sail with Saul Williams, Khari McClelland and Dawn Pemberton, Eugene Bae and Kimmortal;
April 25: Sounds Like Fire: Femme4Femme: Amber Dawn, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Kama La Mackerel, and Kai Cheng Thom;
April 26: Sonya Renee Taylor and Denise Jolly from The Body Is Not An Apology;
And to the CIPS Finals featuring Sheri-D Wilson at the Rio Saturday night, April 29
… you would pay $75. Go to at least one more event with your pass and you have got yourself a deal. Get your Early Bird Pass for $60 and you are really saving!
