For the outsiders… Slam poetry

I heard about Shane Koyczan’s newest video from Okanagan College, where I work. Shane is an amazing slam poet, that you might recall from his memorable performance at the 2010 Olympics. He also happens to be an alumni of the college! And a resident of our lovely Okanagan Valley. He’s amazingly talented with the spoken word, and this video collaboration talking about bullying and the lasting effects on children is so worth watching… Pure poetry. Such an important message that I really felt in my heart.

If you want to hear more of his poetry, you can subscribe to a monthly poem at

I have to admit I’m a fan!
And just for your pleasure, here is his Olympic performance.

Say hello!
