Carly, who hails from Texas originally, says: 'I was completely shocked and very proud to have my writing recognized in this way. I'm definitely still a newcomer to slam and I'm looking forward to watching some wonderful poets perform in Paris. I'm facing off in my first round against some from Russia, Portugal and Romania! I'm going to do my best to represent Scotland (a country that I really love) but for me it's just about the experience and everybody coming together to celebrate poetry.'
Good luck Carly. We'll be rooting for you!
