“Please join us for a night of poetry centered around the theme of conservation, sustainability and awareness of the emerging climate crisis. We are pleased to welcome two distinguished local poets, Kim Trainor and Renee Saklikar.

Kim Trainor is the granddaughter of an Irish banjo player and a Polish faller who worked in logging camps around Port Alberni in the 1930s. Her book, Lediwas was a finalist for the 2019 Raymond Souster Award. She teaches at Douglas College and lives in Vancouver, ancestral, unceded homelands of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ Nations.”

Jan 27 – Mashed Poetics: Full Moon Fever

I’ll be performing a couple of sci-fi journey poems with the Mashed Poetics crew next Saturday on the Drive. Come on by and say hi! Here are the details:

“Mashed Poetics is a night of spoken word and music mash up. Poets are asked to write new work based on a song from the album we choose and we have a live band to play all the songs. Poets perform in between the tunes.

The next show is Saturday Jan 27th at Café Deux Soleils and we feature the late 80s classic Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty.”
