Joshua Scribe Watkis

A lifetime immersed in the performing arts has made Joshua “Scribe” Watkis entirely devoted to the gift of storytelling. Through Spoken Word Poetry and Hip-Hop, he has taken thousands into his world to experience it as he does. The Scarborough born poet has performed on stages across Canada, appeared on CBC and has opened for the legendary Hip-Hop band ‘The Roots’ with ‘The Uncharted’ collective.

 As a competitor he has attended the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word in 2014, 2015 and 2017, never having missed a finals stage, winning the championship in 2019. Scribe, owner and facilitator of Word is Bond, is an Arts Educator and event organizer; as well as a member of the Up From The Roots collective and the Rapper/Producer duo S.O.A.P (Scribe & Onglish Aren’t Perfect). His goal is not only to bring his audiences through his story, but to gift them with the courage to do what he calls the “bravest act on Earth.”. To share their own stories, in their words, out loud.
