About Us

3, 2, 1… Throw!

The Throw! Poetry Collective produces a spoken word competition every month.

At our events, we have an Open Mic, a Sacrificial Poet, a Feature Performer, randomly-chosen Judges, and of course, an evocative and passionate competition between poets, performance artists, and insightful speakers alike (and the audience gets in there, too).

Anyone can take the stage for three minutes of slam poetry if they follow these Rules.

The purpose of the monthly slams is to discover who will make up the team that will represent Montréal at the yearly Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.

Of course, it’s not about the points, it’s about the poetry. That’s why the Throw! Collective is committed to maintaining a safer space while encouraging free speech and creative expression in the city of Montréal, QC.
