The Regina Word Up programming has provided spoken word events, workshops and opportunities for over five years in the Queen City. It has sent poets through poetry slam teams or solo artists to national competitions: Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, Canadian Individual Poetry Slam, and Voices of Today. These Spoken Word Canada (SpoCan) sanctioned festivals.  



Regina Word Up Youth is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series!

A Youth Stage is an opportunity to share work with our peers and greater community. No scores (like there are in poetry slam’s) and all support, this event is a great opportunity for youth (14-22) who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage. 

Have something you want to share that we didn’t list? We love creativity, and we would probably let you perform…just ask us! Regina Word Up Youth Stage is for youth of all skill levels interested in sharing stories – of any kind. We celebrate all styles of writing and voices, and encourage our community to support our powerful poets. 

There is a gentle time limit of 5 minutes per person to allow enough time for all of our community. If you have more to share than that, we will allow you another five-minute block after everyone has performed, time permitting.

Audience members, come prepared with snapping fingers and a good pair of lungs, as always!

After the youth stage, we host a community stage for ALL AGES. A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. 

If you are interested in volunteering, sponsoring, supporting, collaborating or have ideas that may benefit Regina Word Up and the development of our spoken word communities, please contact us at reginawordup@gmail.com
