 or Love and Resilience

BTW’s Poetry JAM is back! Save the date: Friday, February 12, 7PM. This year we are bringing together some of Montreal’s most talented spoken wordsmiths in an online showcase where each artist will perform work based on the theme “Love and Resilience”.

Hosted by the wonderful and talented Deanna Smith, we are thrilled for the return of this popular event, as part of our celebrations to commemorate Black History Month.  Following the presentation, our poets will participate in a virtual live discussion and Q&A with the audience. Get inspired and be moved by the power of the spoken word at the BTW Poetry JAM!
