That's right, it's a FREE slam and we're again partnering with the Toronto Festival of Authors for a very special event. This slam is open to everyone, as always, BUT note it's just two rounds AND the grand prize for the winner is $250! Note that we are starting later too: Doors at 8pm signup 830pm and show at 9pm. The Festival is asking people to register free to come to this event, so they can get an idea of numbers.
