We are stoked to feature the champ of last year's CIPS, Gavin Russell! He is a Spoken Word Poet out of Whitby Ontario, After getting his start at Capital Slam in February of 2012, he was hooked, and began his journey of sharing his words across Canada, and recently, into the United States. A five time (five time, five time) CFSW team member, 2014 Capital Slam Champion, 2018 Toronto Poetry Slam Champion, and member of the winning team at CFSW 2018, Gavin has seen many stages over the past 7 years, and can't wait to share his next one with you! Looking for some goofy poetry that relishes in the mundane beauty of the everyday? That's he aims to give you!
