Lunch Poems connects the city with poets – a great place to bring your lunch and your questions about poetry. There’s always a Q & A after the reading.
The light in the Teck Gallery at SFU’s Harbour Centre Campus is beautiful, the vibe is friendly and relaxed.
And we always end on time.

THE REVOLVING CITY is a collection of poetry and short poetic essays where the physical, historical, cultural and linguistic grounds of the urban experience are examined by each poet’s reflection on their own work. The book is co-edited by Wayde Compton and Renée Sarojini Saklikar. You can hear them both authors speak about the making of the book on Waxed Poetic, the long running poetry show on Vancouver Co-op Radio:30 | Vancouver Co-op Radio
A note of thanks: many thanks to everyone who attended our book launch, hosted by SFU Public Square in collaboration with Lunch Poems at SFU and The Writer’s Studio. Over a hundred guest participated in our reception which included an enormous celebratory cake, book table with our publisher Anvil Press, and readings by Joanne Arnott, George Bowering, Daphne Marlatt, George Stanley, Fred Wah, and Betsy Warland. These poets read beautifully, with George Bowering bringing down the house as he read the late Jamie Reid’s poem, “Prayer.” SFU President Andrew Petter opened the event, and the co-founder of Lunch Poems at SFU, Shauna Sylvester, hosted a memorable evening. Deep gratitude to the discerning brilliance of co-editor, Wayde Compton, the precision organizational skills of Robin Prest, Kim Gilker, from our Lunch Poems team and of course, a thousand thanks to our managing editor Monica Miller.
You can buy The Revolving City at Anvil Press and we’ll also be at Word Vancouver this Sunday.
