July 24 – Host: Alasdair Rees, Featuring: Alasdair Rees, and Lucas Regazzi and an author to be announced. 

  Alasdair Rees is a Fransaskois poet working across mediums. In 2019, he was chosen as Saskatchewan’s first Youth Poet Laureate. He is a former Saskatoon individual poetry slam champion, teaches cultural studies and French at the University of Saskatchewan, and has served a term as the Regina Public Interest Research Group's Artist in Residence. His work has been exhibited across Western Canada and can be read in GUTS, Urbania, Oratorealis, Revue Moebius, and ÖMËGÄ.
     
    Imogen Rennie is an artist of calculated force. Having started her professional career at the age of 17, Imogen took the Canadian poetry circuit by storm when she debuted her first series of slam poems at the Festival of Words in 2014. She dove deep in to perpetrating a captivating stage presence under the influence of Johnny Trinh’s teachings in 2016, when she competed with Regina Word Up at CFSW. She has held many prestigious roles in the Canadian poet community, including being the Representative of Regina for the 2017 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam, where her captivating performances earned her her place in the Top 20 alongside some of Canada’s most respected slam poets. Imogen has spent the past 2 years refocusing and navigating her intentions on stage, in order to create a truly powerful and engaging performance hell-bent on posing the question — are beautiful sounds dead? Or did we just bury them far too soon. 
  Olivia Cayce, also known as Olive Bestvater, goes by many names. She is one proud half of Little Criminals, a former member of Black Tremor and a sometimes-member of mantra doom band Zaum. After three years of living in Montreal, she now spends most of her time avoiding cities with her dog. Her recent work is mostly about missing the conifers of the Ottawa valley. Her bio photo was taken by Manzi Sankey.

July 31 – Host: Paula Jane Remlinger, Featuring: Rachel Laverdiere, Carrie Ann Schemenauer, and Robert Cram.
