The Love Hurts Poetry Slam was a great success with about 70 people packed into the theatre lobby on Friday, February 13, 2009. The event attracted 13 poets from the university and the greater community and all won prizes. Top prizes were $50 cash from the library, $50 cash from the English department, one pair of Director's Festival passes and two pairs of "Hamlet" tickets from the theatre department and a red hoodie from the UFV Bookstore. Other prizes included UFV logo baseball caps, Student Union Society t-shirts and water bottles and Casey's gift certificates.
