We're thrilled to announce the selection of Chris Chambers as the winner of IFOA's 8th Annual Poetry NOW Battle of the Bards, held last night at Toronto's Harbourfront Centre. Chris competed against 19 other poets, including fellow Buckrider James Lindsay, all of whom gave terrific readings from their latest collections.
Chris is the second Wolsak & Wynn poet to take home the title. Catherine Graham won in 2014.
Congratulations to all the poets for a wonderful, entertaining evening in celebration of poetry, and a special congratulations to Chris on the victory.
Check out Chris's winning poems in Thrillows and Despairos.
