Springfield vs. Shelbyville Poetry Slam - Meet the Sponsors

Back Door Winery

Rawle first connected with this Summerland based winery and man I have to be honest, its challenging not to make a million inappropriate jokes inspired by their name. But I will behave because this lovely, intimate winery has offered up bottles of wine for all of the poets competing on January 27th. We strive to always pay our poets, but in lieu of this possibility, having community partners who can say thank you in other ways is a wonderful gift. Check out the amazing winery and get out of Kelowna to show your support and love for Team Shelbyville by repping this Summerland winery.

Float Space

Many creatives and athletes alike would shout from the tops of mountains about the incredible benefits of floating, if we let them. Thanks to Dustin Erickson and the team over at Float Space, our poets will be gifted with some float time if they manage to take First, Second or Third place. But don't worry! Float Space is an inviting place where you can go to recharge, so check them out for yourself and let us know what you think.

Arts Council of the Central Okanagan

Katie Brennan is a fantastic visual artist, friend of IWC, and President of the Arts Council for the Central Okanagan. When she came to IWC and said "Let's do something sweet together!" we could not turn her down. Without the generous support of ARTSCo, the madness of Springfield vs. Shelbyville would not be possible. Check out all the work they are up to around the Okanagan Valley and don't forget to nominate your favourite artists for the 10th Annual Okanagan Arts Awards in May.

I know you are, but what am I?

I know you are, but what am I?

We are so pumped for the big Springfield vs. Shelbyville Poetry Slam happening on January 27, 2017! Since our original call for poets in early November, we have selected the two teams, booked our venue and are eager to announce our wine and beer sponsors. Not to mention, if Rawle has his way, there will certainly be some kind of pre-show entertainment before the slam begins. It's going to be a killer night in Kelowna and it's only $10 through our Eventbrite campaign. Damn. This is almost as good as the Lemon Tree!
