If you happen to be on Pender Island, come on out in the evening and listen to some bee poetry!
I’ll be delivering the RCLAS keynote and reading from Listening to the Bees – more details below:
I’ve put my name down and will be reading from Listening to the Bees!
Back by popular demand, CA–MV’s Open Mic night is a great way to catch up on what local authors are writing…
…Each reader is allocated a five-minute segment. This includes any comments about the work. From experience, we suggest keeping the intro to five or ten seconds to maximize reading time. The average five-minute speech consists of 650 words. Please aim for your reading to be between 625 and 650 words.
Carol Tulpar is the host. Robert W. Mackay is the moderator. He’s firm and fair. Each presenter will be advised when there is one minute left. Readers who go over their time will hear applause to indicate their time is up. The moderator’s word is final.”

Listening to the Bees, my latest collaboration with Mark Winston, will be launching in Victoria at the Fortune Gallery this May 25!
“Listening to the Bees is a collaboration between two writers who share a common passion for bees and for language. It combines Winston’s personal essays based on thirty years as a scientist in the field with the honey bee and Saklikar’s poems created in response to a rich scientific archive.”
Join Read Local BC for an insightful and engaging evening of poetry considering our place in the world, how we engage with society, and our effect on the natural world.
Three BC poets— Kate Braid, (Elemental – Caitlin Press) Mercedes Eng (Prison Industrial Complex Explodes – Talonbooks), and Cornelia Hoogland (Trailer Park Elegy Harbour Publishing)—will be hosted by Surrey Poet Laureate Renee Sarojini Saklikar.
Date: Tuesday, May 29, 2018
