Ottawa: Sunday afternoon readings, spoken word & music

The long-running
is happening again this weekend!

This semi-monthly series is dedicated to showcasing the best in literary talent and fostering the artistic community.
The show includes a featured reader or performer and a musical guest, followed by an open-mic session -- so if you've got any poetry, fiction or spoken word that you'd like to share with the world, bring it along.

And this Sunday's feature will be:
Jeff Cottrill is a satirical writer, spoken-word artist, theatre/film critic, and occasional actor based in Toronto. His stage act often uses elements of performance poetry, comedy, theatre and storytelling. He has featured in literary and performance series throughout Ontario, the midwest U.S. and England. Jeff has authored three chapbooks of short fiction and comic monologues and recorded two spoken-word CDs. His reviews and articles have appeared in Eye Weekly, NOW, Exclaim! and other publications. TorontoPoets.com has called Jeff "one of the funniest spoken-word artists in Canada".

Plus special musical guest:
spoken-word powerhouse and musician; former CBC Poetry Face-Off Ottawa champ, and past opener for the likes of Shane Koyczan and Raffi

And if you get the munchies, no worries -- there will be reasonably priced yummies for sale, courtesy of B Goods!
