Honey, Hives and Poetry: A Summary

Honey, Hives and Poetry: A Summary

Dr. Mark Winston’s succinct summary of our collaboration during last month’s wonderful Honey, Hives and Poetry event at the Vancouver Public Library:

“…Renee and I were stoked by the evening to grow the bee/poetry interface, and hope to write some new work and evolve our collaboration into a multi-media performance with music and other poets.

And we aspire to inspire, by offering opportunities for those who don’t consider themselves poets to dip their toes into language and vocalizations that express the inestimable insights that bees can bring to our human world.”
