Sheniz Janmohamed wins first York Region Spoken Word Slam

The birth of a new slam series is a special moment. The room buzzes with intensity as showtime approaches. The new host is jittery, unsure of what the night will bring but thrilled about the experience that is about to unfold. Audience members, the majority of whom have never witnessed a slam event before, sit and chat with their neighbours. The music dims, the emcee steps to the mic, and the show begins.

Such was the scene this evening at Jake’s on Main in Unionville, where the first-ever YorkSlam took place. Before a packed house, Cytopoetics put on a terrific show. The three open mic poets were from the Writers’ Community of York Region who came to show support, and shared words that whetted the audience’s appetite for more.
