NorthWord and Events Wood Buffalo presents Shane Koyczan

NorthWord Magazine, launching issue #8 Fire, and Events Wood Buffalo presents Shane Koyczan, a virtuoso of the spoken word and one of the stars of the 2012 Vancouver Olympics Opening Ceremony. He will change your mind about poetry forever. 

With his rhythmic verse in high gear, he navigates his audience through social and political territory with a furious honesty and a tender humanity that has brought audiences to their feet in New York, London, Edinburgh, Sydney, and Los Angeles. Winner of the US Slam Poetry Championship and the Canadian Spoken Word Olympics, Koyczan is truley and extraordinary talent that has blown the dust off of the designation "poet".

"Shane Koyczan is electrifying. It's a rare poet who can make his audience laugh and cry; this is a writer who will break your heart then heal it." - Val McDermid, author of the Grave Tattoo.
