Awarded 2012′s Rookie of the Year and most recently crowned Ottawa Versefest’s 2013 Women’s Slam Champion, V’s voice currently resonates as one of Ottawa’s newest female influences. A semi-finalist at the 2012 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word and sole female member of the 2012 Ottawa Capital Slam team, V has risen to several poetic plates in a short amount of time. She released her first self-published anthology of her work entitled, Since February, at the beginning of this year, showcasing her journey as an artist and human being throughout the trials and tribulations of life. Equally funny and heartfelt, she strives to highlight her versatility so that her poetry may strike a chord with each person in the crowd.
