McSWAY Poetry was founded on October 13, 2012 with the mission of reintroducing spoken word poetry to the McGill community.
As the only poetry club at McGill University, McSWAY is a space for Montreal writers and artists to share their work, amplify their voices, and build a creative community through workshops, poetry shares, open mics, art shows, and more. McSWAY strives to use sustainable, anti-oppressive practice to create a safe space for all. Everyone is welcome at McSWAY events, students and non-students alike! We support poets and artists of all backgrounds and all levels.
