Slam Team of 2019!

The UBC Slam Team is made up of UBC's finest poets all the way from the depths of a donut shop. These 5 poets are Emily Frances, Ananya Aravindan, Emily Mao, Jaanam Jaswani and Kerem Can Erman, coached by last year’s team captain Vienna Claire Jeffery. Our Grand Slam Champion is Emily Frances, a 2nd year creative writing major and one of many trauma victims who has turned her scars into healing pieces of art. 


Hungry for the competition (and since they’re all students, just hungry generally), the UBC team is ready to take Guelph by storm.

Emily Frances

After a thriving career in many different businesses, UBC Slam Poetry was pleased to welcome River Watts to the team. As a motivated, results-oriented collaborator, they’ve helped to make us what we are today.

Kerem Can Erman

Hailing from Istanbul, Kerem Can is a film production student at UBC. Kerem started to write poetry in high school upon discovering his inability to write long diary entries due to his impatience and weak wrists. With encouragement from close friends, Kerem has recently started to perform his poetry and feels very grateful for the opportunity to do so.
