Discovery Night host Nancy Bullis

For the 12th time in as many years the Art Bar Discovery Night, hosted by Art Bar alumnus Nancy Bullis gave Toronto poets a shot at launching their careers into a new orbit by winning an Art Bar feature.

After three rounds and much audience voting, 20 hopeful readers were pared down to three:

And the winner (drum roll please)….

Kimberley, the night’s deserving winner, is a long-time regular at the Art Bar’s open stage.

Sixteen poets presented their own work and were judged by audience ballots during the 11th Annual Art Bar Discovery Night.

The talent and variety of this entire group of readers was staggering.

The competition was intense, but we carefully counted the ballots and brought it down to ten readers. Another round, another vote, and three readers read in the final round.

Nancy & Cynthia counted the votes twice.

There was a TIE for first place!

Congratulations to Eytan Millstone and Jennifer Marston, who will be our Art Bar feature readers on Tuesday April 20th – don’t miss it!

Thank you so much to everyone who participated, and we hope to see you all out again next year!

Also, Nancy will be interviewing the winners on her HOWL program on – check their listings to find out when.
