The Great Canadian YouTube Poetry Contest

My newest poetry video created by the talented Jessica, Charlie and Lucy at NTCI, late January. We submitted this video to the Great Canadian YouTube Poetry Contest, where voting by likes created a short-list. The videos were then judged by numbers just like at a poetry slam.

Watch my “I’m So Gay” piece, if you haven’t yet:

I was proud of my submission and so grateful for all the support – from the high school student who penned “I’m so gay” in 1″ block letters on her outer forearm to remember to vote, to the Halton Board’s invitation to read this poem at their Pride Dance, to my siblings who spread the word widely and really showed up. Thank you all!

The winner was the talented Winona Linn with her poem Homeward Bound. Congrats! Check out her poem:
