Tongues of Fire and the Victoria Poetry Project present VICTORIOUS VOICES. Youth poets from 8 schools will go head-to-head sharing their truth, their stories and their insights while competing for poetic glory. After two years performing to a packed high school theatre we are moving the event downtown to showcase Victoria's amazingly talented youth poets to the public. This will be one of the most inspiring events of the year! Don't miss it. Come boo the judges, cheer the poets, laugh loudly, snap fingers, stomp feet, and get ready to have your heart opened and your mind blown!
