IAN FRENCH aka IF THE POET joins us as a judge at our Finals Night on May 14th, 2016.
IF’s poems channel the wisdom of Spirit, the rage of the wounded and the yearning that resides in every human heart. He says “every poem I write is a ‘shout out’ to the sacredness of our days, a three chord party jam, and a tribute to the triumph of love over fear.”
IF is the 2014 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Champion, a member of the 2013 National Champion Toronto Poetry Slam Team, and winner of 2013 Buffalo International Slam. He has performed at various festivals including the prestigious Word On The Street and Words Aloud. IF writes his best poetry while walking and can often be seen wandering the streets, gesticulating wildly and muttering to himself.
