Shane Koyczan - The power of words!

Shane Koyczan is a spoken word poet. He is known for writing about issues like bullying, cancer, death, and eating disorders. He is most famous for the anti-bullying poem “To This Day” which has over 24 million views on YouTube. In 2000, Shane became the first Canadian to win the Individual Championship title at the Beach National Poetry Slam.

Koyczan has published several books, including poetry collection Visiting Hours, Stickboy, a novel in verse, Our Deathbeds will be Thirsty, and To This Day: For the Bullied and Beautiful and A Bruise on Light. Visiting Hours was selected by both the Guardian and Globe and Mail for their 2005 Best Books of the Year lists.

Shane and his team at Thompson Artist Management entrusted XBit Technology with an idea to conduct an exclusive online workshop for writers, taught by Shane. Our team added the event to Shane’s website, set up and managed ticket sales, created some marketing and preparatory student materials, provided customer support, and even handled real-time support during the workshop classes.
